Join the UK’s favourite baby signing classes and help your child learn how to communicate before they can talk. Signing babies are happy babies, able to express their needs, wants and feelings. What does your baby want to tell you? “Fantastic class that my son and I truly love!” “Educational. entertaining and enthusiastic baby signing classes.” “Watching babies start to communicate is amazing.” “Partytastic classes!” “Friendly and always happy to see each other and every child!” “Baby signing is wonderful - and so worthwhile, giving your baby ‘a voice’.”
