BABY SIGNS COURSE

Sign, Say & Play®

Start two-way communication before babies can talk to understand your child’s needs, help language development and get a jumpstart on IQ

Does this sound familiar?

I know exactly how you feel because when my first born was diagnosed with Down Syndrome after birth, I was told he might have severe learning disabilities including learning to talk. I did what any mother would do, I learned how to communicate with him.

Around age one we started baby signs with him and within weeks he was telling us “More”  because he enjoys every bit of his food! My second son started to show his “Milk” sign at 5 months old and his vocabulary grew exponentially after year one.

From experience with my own children and teaching baby signs to others, I know that you can:

Reduce frustration

Promote positive emotions

Strengthen bonding

Help babies learn to talk

Introducing:

“We loved the class, Angela uses different ways like books, songs and gives us tips etc to help us learn and remember the signs. She also talks about the different learning/play stages/ways to play with our baby which is really helpful. We enjoyed the class heaps, it is a great bonding session. My son picked up quite a few different signs/words. It made me realise how much he actually understood and definitely helped him communicate with us. We definitely recommend Angela’s class.”

How Sign, Say & Play Works

Course

Each session starts with opening circle time, recaps the previous lesson and introduces the new lesson, songs, game or activity time and story. After closing circle time there is a Q&A session. There are 6 relevant themes we will be covering, mealtime, bedtime, bath time, getting dressed, animals and at the park and the emotion signs throughout the course..

Follow up

Access to a private Facebook group where you can access the class notes, songs, all the videos for the signs we have learnt and new signs adding in every week and you can post questions for the instructor and fellow parents whether it relates to the signs or parenting in this wonderful community.

Why You’ll Love It

Enjoyable

Parents and babies receive a joyful experience throughout the course from learning, sharing and progressing together rather than learning alone.

Individualized

Our Instructor can recommend the specific strategy to suit individual needs  and preferences that could help baby and family to work it out on the signing and communication.

Live

It is not pre-recorded. Live online or physical class for 4 or 6 weeks ensures you will attend this interactive course without signing up but not doing the course and wasting money. We will sign, sing along, bond with one another, and connect with other parents and babies.

Bonding

Bond with your baby during these interactive and singalong classes while learning baby signs and parenting tips.

Thorough

Learn over 90 of the most helpful and foundational baby signs for daily life.

Communication

Help your baby to talk about and express their needs and feelings to you and let you know what they see and what they want to do and even if they are in pain or discomfort.

What People Are Saying

Meet Your Instructor

Angela

Hi, I am Angela, a mother of two lovely boys. I am very passionate to work with babies and parents and I went on to become an independent certified Baby signs instructor and have taught over hundreds of Singapore families over the years. I am also a certified sleep consultant and certified potty training coach to build up early communications for the families with less frustration, tears and anxiety.

I truly believe that early communication works wonders for both parents and babies. During all those years of teaching baby signs, I developed tips and tricks to help parents to teach their babies in the most efficient way possible. I would like to share everything I learned with you and hope our baby signs program will lead to a better bonding and understanding between you and your child just like it did for me..

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a query? Please check this question and answers

Our program is actually designed to teach you basic sign language as you teach your baby. You’ll feel confident after our practice through games, stories and songs and you will be able to know if it’s working for your baby, and you’ll get practical tips to avoid common pitfalls. Remember learning the baby signs opens a whole new door of playtime activities that will keep your baby entertained well into their toddler years.

There are many videos and websites that offer pieces of the baby-signing puzzle. However, the trouble is, they leave out key strategies that can literally make or break your signing experience. Because your goal is for your baby to sign back and communicate with you not only for you to learn the signs yourself.  I truly believe if they had used our approach, their story would have a very different ending!

The course may be beneficial for your family, but there would be lots of songs, singing and sound-based activities which your baby may not hear. Our classes are not extensive enough to teach you to communicate with your deaf child and we would recommend taking a comprehensive course with Deaf Association. But if your purpose is for you and your child to mingle with others, you are most welcome to join the fun together!

The course may be beneficial for your family just like how my own family enjoyed it and that was the motivation for me to start to teach. Having said that, the course is not specifically designed for children with special needs, and we are not qualified on  special needs education. You are most welcome to join the fun together with us and a special 10% discount is applied for families with special needs children. You may indicate in the registration form.

Most parents start using baby signs around 6-8 months old as babies become more aware at this age. If your child is younger, you can choose to start as early as you want to have the signing habit early on. If your child is older, you will find that communication happens faster. There is no perfect time as long as it suits your family’s situation.

Most babies who start learning around 6 months old usually start to sign back between 9-12 months old. Sign language happens quicker than spoken language development because moving hands is much easier. During the course, we will share all of our tips and tricks to get your baby signing to you as quickly as possible.

Upon registration, you will be given a link to register for the ZOOM meeting. There will be a few different timings to suit your family’s needs like weekday or weekend and morning or afternoon. All the course content—the videos, song lyrics, handouts are available on the private group.

Yes if you choose to have a physical course because this will be a bonding experience for you and baby. We suggest the best age for the physical course is 6-18 months where they can enjoy the activities designed for them.

No if you choose to have an online course! First, how hard is it to get your baby to sit still for anything? We wouldn’t do that to you. And the screen time is  just not right for them. Second, you are your baby’s best teacher. You watch the lessons and practice the signs, then teach them to your baby. But they can definitely join the opening circle time and the song time to get some groove if they are awake.

For the physical course, there are 4 classes and 45-60 min each.

For online courses, there are 6 classes and 45-60 min each.

Both courses share the same content but use different activities.

Online course we offer via Zoom. To ensure security, you will receive a notification of each session’s meeting ID and password before class starts.

Physical courses will be held around Bukit Timah or Queenstown area or at your own house if you wish to have a private course for you and your friends only.

We have received feedback from parents that 6 sessions are too long to commit, so we offer 4 sessions instead but we cover the same content plus some interactive activities with babies.
