Sing and Sign

Helping Babies Communicate Before Speech.

Help your baby to communicate before speech with our award winning classes! It’s fun and easy to learn and a great way to meet new friends and bond with your baby.

What is baby Signing? 

 

Babies use all kinds of signs and gestures as a natural part of learning to talk. Encouraging your baby with extra signs like milk, more, change nappy or tired will help your baby communicate. Baby signing with Sing and Sign is easy because we make it fun to learn! Your baby will recognise important words sooner and can use the signs to “talk” to you before speech.

 

Developed with the help of speech and language professionals and recommended by experts, Sing and Sign is Britain’s longest running and best loved baby signing programme. Sing and Sign offers a variety of ways to learn

 

Signing benefits include:

  • Helping to understand your baby’s needs, thoughts and ideas
  • Reducing frustration (for baby and parent!)
  • Enhancing early vocabulary and understanding
  • Encouraging the development of speech
  • Enriching your baby’s relationships
  • Building confidence and self-esteem
  • Stimulating your baby’s intellectual and emotional development

 

 

Which stage should I choose?

0-6 months- Babes

 

Our Sing and Sign Babes class is a gentle way to encourage bonding and communication with your little one. This is a 5 week course which focuses on songs and games that have been specially designed to introduce the skills needed to develop and introduce the framework of communication. You will also receive weekly emails that are tailored to the theme of the week throughout the course to support you with your journey.

 

Our babes classes focus on three main areas:

 

  • Captivate: we use songs, games and music to engage even the littlest babies with a gentle, multi-sensory approach.
  • Communicate: discover how your baby is exploring eye contact, facial expression and babble to learn about how communication works.
  • Connect: enjoy one-to-one time and learn new rhymes and activities your baby will love.

 

Our classes are small, relaxed and supportive. It doesn’t matter if your baby needs a feed, a cuddle, a sleep or a clean nappy. Go ahead and then enjoy what you learn together later on, at home.

6-15 months- Stage One

 

Our Stage One course is a 10 week term during which you will cover over 100 signs relating you your baby’s world. We learn the signs through songs and music! Sing and Sign classes are relaxed, great fun and a wonderful way to learn all you need to know about baby signing!

 

As you begin the term you are not expected to instantly remember all the signs shown, or to use them straight away with your baby! Learning the Sing and Sign way is gradual and effortless, building week on week. Classes are themed and the lessons (and online support) offer a comprehensive guide to baby signing.

 

As well as many familiar and original songs, toys, props and pictures are used to inspire your baby’s interest and illustrate the signs. We sing about going to the park, mealtime, bath time and bedtime and other things to capture your child’s imagination like animals and vehicles. These are the signs babies love to use!

 

As a Stage 1 class member you’ll also have FREE access to step by step online lesson reminders, tips and clips to support your class experience as you sign with your baby at home.

 

Class numbers are strictly limited to encourage a safe and intimate environment. Babies enjoy the beneficial routine of attending each week, soon becoming familiar with the format and anticipating what exciting thing happens next…perhaps the instruments, the peek-a-boo box with Jessie Cat, the props bag or the picture board.

 

Learning the Sing and Sign way is gradual and effortless, building week on week. Classes are themed and the lessons (and online support) offer a comprehensive guide to baby signing.

 

All of our Sing and Sign classes are COVID -secure – We have made modifications to our usual class delivery to meet our own high standards for safety so that you can relax and enjoy your time with your baby.
