A Sing and Sign course runs for 10 weeks and each class lasts about 35-45 minutes.  In those 10 sessions, you can learn well over 100 signs.  Some signs are relevant to baby’s routine (milk, eat, change nappy); some are signs for things that babies are interested in (park, duck, train).  Bristol families say over and over again how much they enjoy Sing and Sign classes and how beneficial signing has been for them.
