At Sing and Sign, we offer 3 different classes, each designed for a different age range to ensure that our classes are suitable for all our babies.
Babes is for 0-6 months and is a gentle, sensory class, designed to focus on the key elements of good communication with babies, such as eye contact, repetition and anticipation. We also start to use some initial signing. This is all done through music, using songs, instruments, toys and props.
Stage 1 is for around 6-14 months. Each week we introduce a new theme, for example, bath time, then look at signs that are associated with the theme. This is a fully interactive class using simple, catchy songs to help parents remember the signs and give the babies a whole lot of fun, using instruments, props and toys. Each week you will be sent an email to remind you of the key signs of the week.
Stage 2 is for around 14-24 months. As with Stage 1, we introduce a different theme each week, progressing to letters using phonics and colours, amongst many others. We also focus more on social skills, encouraging babies to share and use manners. This is a lively class, where babies are not only signing, but now starting to fully use their voices too. Each week you will be sent an email to remind you of the key signs of the week.
Our Babes term runs for 5 weeks and our Stage 1 and 2 terms run for 10 weeks, with a week break for half term in the middle.
We ask that you sign up and pay in advance to secure your place, which means you get to catch up with the same group of parents and babies each week, building a great new group of friends. We keep our class sizes small, to ensure that we keep a relaxed atmosphere for both babies and parents.
