Sing and Sign: Horfield Methodist Church


Developed with the help of speech and language professionals and recommended by experts, Sing and Sign is the original British baby signing programme.

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 and fun and over the course your baby will learn around 150 signs. Your baby will recognise important words sooner and can use the signs to “talk” to you before speech.
