From 6 months to 11 years old


The Babysign Teacher has been running fun short courses for parents and professionals in the Manchester and Cheshire areas since 2010.

We teach adults to sign with babies, toddlers and primary school children.

We run ‘half day, adult only’ courses and ‘baby comes too’ courses which run for one hour a week over 4 weeks enabling adults to attend the course with their child.

All signs taught are British Sign Language and are compatible with the MAKATON signing system.

Children can learn to sign from around 6 months old.  

Signing benefits all children, not just those with a speech, hearing or language difficulty.

Research has proven that :

‘adding signs to a child’s repertoire not only leads to better communication, it also speeds up the process of learning to talk, stimulates intellectual development, enhances self esteem and strengthens the bond between adult and child'
