Baby Signing reduces frustration and crying, aids communication and develops early speech. Signing Hands classes are full of fun, teaching Auslan signs to babies and toddlers (6 months – 4 years) through stories, songs, puppets, music, craft and play. Free trial classes are available, visit the website for more course details & to see pictures/testimonials.
A Signing Hands course lasts for 8 weeks. The lessons are once a week and last for one hour. There are Baby, Toddler and Pre Kindy courses available.
Our courses include a booklet containing pictures and written descriptions of how to perform more than 170 signs. It also provides you with invaluable information regarding how to gain the most from your baby signing experience and helpful tips.
The classes are for parents/carers and babies/children. They will consist of approximately 45 minutes signing time with the babies/children using stories, songs, puppets, rhymes and play. Towards the end of signing time, a snack is provided while a story is read and then there is time for parents to chat and ask questions. All baby classes cater for mixed abilities & ages from birth to approximately 18 months.
The main emphasis during Signing Hands classes is having fun with your baby. Babies acquire the majority of their knowledge and skills through play and interaction with those around them. Signing with your baby is a unique experience, enhancing the close bond between you and allowing for communication and understanding from an incredibly early age.
