What is it?
Sunshine Sign and Sing is baby and toddler signing for mums, dads, grandparents or anyone who wants to come have fun and learn some signs .
We use Key Word sign based on Australian sign language alongside speech using songs, games and stories with the aim to enhance communication between you and your little one in a fun and friendly environment.
For a preview with a little about baby signing and what we do you heres a quick 3 minute video.
If you liked that, scroll to the bottom for a 20 minute short where you can learn some signs with some songs 😀🖐👌👍🎶

We run a 10 week programme within term time (apart from this term, Term 1 2021). The session has a different theme each week including animals, every day signs, food and seasonal themes i.e Easter and each week has 12 signs to accompany the theme. We sing themed songs, have a sensory activity and finish with a book.
