Baby Sign Language Classes in Exeter

Sing and Sign

Sing and Sign baby music and baby sign classes ExeterSing and Sign is the fun way to learn baby signing!  We have 3 stages:

Sing and Sign Babes for pre 6 months babies

Sing and Sign Stage 1 for 6 -14 month babies

Sing and Sign Stage 2 for 14+ months toddlers

Babes is a lovely introduction to baby signing.  We discover the importance of gesture, eye contact, shared looking and much more, all through music and props!

Stage 1 includes over 150 signs.  Parents learn signs as we entertain the babies with music, props, instruments and lots of singing!  Early signs help reduce frustration for you and your child as you learn to communicate with each other through gesture.

Stage 2 helps develop confidence in young toddlers through music and play.  Their vocabulary is widened through further signs, introducing colours and numbers and even the phonics alphabet.  We sing, sign, play and even dance, its great fun.

Monday – Sidmouth, Tuesday and Wednesday – Exeter, Wednesday – Broadclyst, Thursday and Friday – Honiton.
