Welcome to Signing Babies

Take the guess work and frustration out of the early years of bringing up your baby and give them the best start in life!

SIGNING BABIES was established in 2003 to help parents and their babies learn to communicate, bond, and build the baby’s confidence, self esteem and vocabulary. Babies as young as 5 months old can learn to use their hands to communicate what they need or what they are thinking.

The signs are easy and fun to learn. Our team of highly trained teachers provide fun and interactive classes and workshops for you and your baby to learn to sing, play and sign together.

The classes are structured to include communication advice and strategies and we welcome children with special needs and hearing loss.

What the experts say

Dr Linda Acredolo Dr Susan Goodwyn
('Baby Signs' Vermillion, 2000)

With signs literally at your baby's fingertips, communication between you can flourish during that difficult time from about nine to thirty months, when your baby's desire to communicate outstrips her capacity to say words.
