WINNER: SING AND SIGN
What is baby signing? Babies use all kinds of signs and gestures as a natural part of learning to talk. Encouraging your baby with extra signs like milk, more, change nappy or tired will help your baby communicate!
Baby signing with Sing and Sign is easy because they make it fun to learn! Your baby will recognise important words sooner and can use the signs to “talk” to you before speech.
Developed with the help of Speech and Language professionals and recommended by experts, Sing and Sign is Britain’s longest running and best loved baby signing programme. Sing and Sign offers a variety of ways to learn :
In a class: Attending a weekly Sing and Sign group with other parents and babies.
At home: With Sing and Sign Books, CD’s and DVD’s which babies love to watch!
Online: Access their extensive Members dictionary of baby signs.
Each session includes roughly half an hour of singing and signing and ample social time for tea or coffee (venue facilities may vary) while your baby plays and makes friends. As well as many familiar and original songs, toys, props and pictures are used to inspire your baby’s interest and illustrate the signs. Sing and Sign participants sing about going to the park, mealtime, bath time and bedtime and other things to capture your child’s imagination like animals and vehicles. These are the signs babies love to use!
