Sing and Sign
Babies use all kinds of signs and gestures as a natural part of learning to talk. With the help of these classes, your baby will recognise important words sooner and can use the signs to “talk” to you before speech. The classes are developed with the help of Speech and Language professionals and recommended by experts.
Benefits of signing include:
Helping to understand your baby's needs, thoughts and ideas
Reducing frustration (for baby and parent!)
Enhancing early vocabulary and understanding
Encouraging the development of speech
Enriching your baby's relationships
Building confidence and self-esteem
Stimulating your baby's intellectual and emotional development.
The 3 classes offered are:
Babes (any age up to around 7 months)
Stage 1 (6 months plus)
Stage 2 (14 months to around 24 months).
