    I am mummy to Joel (9), Martha (7) and Leah (3).  I attended Sing and Sign classes with all three of my children, starting in the Babes classes and working our way through Stages 1 and 2.  We loved how the classed equipped us with signs to support our daily routines and interests of our children, underpinned with a solid understanding of their natural communication skills and instincts.  It was incredible to see each of our children 'speak' to us through signs and communicate their worlds to us from such a young age!

    I am delighted to now have the chance to give some of these skills back to other families in West Edinburgh and hope they love their Sing and Sign journey as much as we did!

    Join us for some Summer Sessions!

    Join Jessie Cat and I for a series of different Summer Fun Sessions!  Additional siblings are welcome!

    What classes are available?

    ‘Babes’

    for babies from birth to around 6/7 months old. – A lovely gentle class for the youngest age group aiming to build the foundations for good communication. The class is relaxed, gives you lots of time face to face with your wee one, plenty of cuddle time and is the perfect place to begin your baby signing journey 

     

    ‘Stage 1’

    for babies from 6 months to around 15 months – Covering lots of different themes relating to your babies world, we use songs, rhymes, instruments, toys and props in a fun, relaxed class. Babies love the fun and the music while adults effortlessly learn all the signs they need for day-to-day life with their baby.

     

    ‘Stage 2’

    for toddlers from around 14 months to 2 years and beyond! – This class covers themes such as colours, phonics, manners, even using the potty! Designed with inquisitive and energetic toddlers in mind.




    When and Where?

    The Sing and Sign programme follows a ten-week curriculum and I teach three terms throughout the year roughly following the school terms.

    • Summer term begins in April 
    • Autumn term begins mid September
    • Seasonal special classes are also available: Book here for Summer Specials

    Venue Classes

    Class numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 (normally smaller) depending on the venue. This keeps classes small, friendly and relaxed but it does mean places are limited so book early!

    • Wednesdays at St Cuthbert's Church, Colinton
    • Thursdays at North Merchiston Club, Fountainbridge
    • Saturdays at St Annes Church, Corstorphine

    Class @Home

    Not able to come to a venue? No problem! Our @HOME online programme runs every term and is available to book on the website. 

    Our specially designed Stage 1 and Stage 2 10-week @Home courses are are pre-recorded videos so you can choose when and how often each week you do the session. They are supported with live streamed Zoom catch up sessions, currently on Saturday mornings.

    The @Home programme is engaging and fun for babies and their grown ups. Below is a list of what's included in the courses.

  • Nurseries

    Working With Nurseries



    By the time many infants start at nursery, they have mastered baby signing as a strong means of communication with their parents. Being able to continue this form of communication with the child has its obvious benefits, not least providing a strong selling point to prospective clients.

     If you run a nursery and would be interested in hosting Sing and Sign classes on-site or would like to become a 'signing nursery' by affiliating to Sing and Sign, then please get in touch.

    If you are a parent and would like your child's nursery to be a Sing and Sign affiliated childcare provider, then please do let me know and I'll make contact with your nursery.
