Sing & Sign
These are brilliant classes for you and your baby or toddler. Sing and Sign is a fun way for your baby to learn different signs and gestures as part of learning to talk.
Who is Sing & Sign for?
Sing & Sign Babes classes are for babies up to 6 months old
Stage 1 classes are for babies from 6 months old
Stage 2 classes are for toddlers from 14 months old, who have completed atleast one term of Stage 1
What does a class involve?
Each class lasts for about one hour – with about 30 – 40 minutes of singing/signing and also time for socialising afterwards.
We keep classes small (10-12 babies/toddlers) to encourage a safe/intimate environment so the sessions are fun, friendly and relaxed.
Each term lasts 10 weeks and is held during school term time.
You will learn over 100 signs to help you communicate and bond with your baby. As you begin the term, you are not expected to instantly remember all of 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 weekly handouts build into your own comprehensive guide to baby signing. At the end of the term, your child will be given a lovely certificate as a keepsake.
You will also get a chance to meet other local adults with babies/toddlers of a similar age.
Your child will love listening to and joining in the singing, playing musical instruments and interacting with other children, our special friend Jessie Cat and me too!
The cost per term is £55 per baby/toddler, accompanied by one or two adults.

I run baby signing classes in Newcastle and North Tyneside. Baby signing has changed my life and I very much want it to change yours too.
I currently offer Sing and Sign classes in Whitley Bay, North Shields and Gosforth with classes running on most days. Many parents have already discovered the benefits of signing with their baby and our award winning classes are filled very quickly. (Please note for twins – one child goes FREE!)
Classes are aimed at teaching baby signing in an entertaining and illuminating way to families who are seriously interested in improving the two-way communication between parent and child and who are committed to getting the most from our award-winning, enjoyable and stimulating course of classes. I absolutely love introducing families to the delights and rewards of signing with their babies and I am committed to making your class experience your favourite time of the week!
