Sing and Sign

Tuesday 9.45 – 12 noon
Wednesday 9.45 – 12 noon

Sing and Sign classes are the fun way to learn Baby Signing.  The classes are full of signs, songs, props, instruments and our magic ingredient of music!  We hold classes for pre 6 months, 6-14 months and 14+ months.  We love to see the babies enjoy early communication with their parents.  They then flourish in our small classes as they become confident with a wider vocabulary of signs, which soon develops into lovely, clear speech. The older toddlers enjoy a dance or two in class and we introduce colours, number and phonics.  Signing really helps alleviate frustration for both children and parents as well as being lots of run along the way!
