Sing and Sign classes start 10 January!

Sing and Sign baby signing classes have been running in Copenhagen for more than a year now, and most of the international parents who have attended the 10-week course agree that the classes are great fun!
Songs and music are used to teach valuable signs to use at home in order to help parents and babies understand each other better. Each session includes lots of action songs (including songs about changing the nappy and having a bath), pictures and props, and of course the very special Jessie Cat who enjoys kisses and cuddles from all the babies every week!
Classes are run in the lovely, baby-friendly café Sweet Surrender in Vesterbro, and the first session in the new year will be on Thursday 10th January at 10:30, 11:45 and 13:30. Classes are small, relaxed and very social and are for babies aged 6-12 months. For more information or to book your place, please visit /www.singandsign.co.uk/classes/classes-near-you/copenhagen or www.facebook.com/singandsigncopenhagen/.

Below is a little from Maya about what you can expect from the class.

Learn baby signing with Sing and Sign

Both I and my children loved Sing and Sign! Because it teaches all the signs through songs and music, it makes learning them seem easy and lots of fun. Some of the songs are written especially for the course which makes it easy to include signs which relate to your everyday life with your baby, and that’s what makes it so useful; there’s a lovely song about changing your baby’s nappy, about bath time, about going to the park etc. The classes are themed, and the signs are introduced gradually. This way, by the end of the 10 week course, you have actually covered more than 100 signs without really thinking about it. However – and this really appealed to me at times – each week also focuses on just a couple of essential signs (such as ‘eat’, ‘drink’ or ‘help’) so that even frazzled parents who haven’t slept for two days feel they can walk away from class with something.

The S&S approach is that baby signing is meant to be simple, relaxed and fun, and each class always follows the same pattern so that your baby quickly feels comfortable with the format and start to anticipate what exciting thing happens next …..perhaps the instruments, the peek-a-boo box with Jessie Cat, the props bag or the picture board.After moving back to Copenhagen last year, I met several English speaking mums who said they would love to do a baby signing class if only classes were available in English. At home we were still listening to the Sing and Sign CD, and my three-year-old daughter would from time to time ask for the DVD, and as I still found myself singing along to the songs and throwing the odd sign in, I decided to look into buying the franchise. I am now the proud owner of Sing and Sign Copenhagen and will start classes in early September 2017. I’m so excited to be able to share my passion for baby signing with other parents this way, and hope to see lots of lovely mums, dads and babies in my classes!
