Baby Signing Class starting in Wickersley Rotherham

While I’m enjoying the summer holidays with my own little Jittabugs, (except for this rain, where has the sun gone?) I’m really looking forward to new classes starting in September.  Baby Sign and Play is a fantastic class – we will be using Makaton signs while singing lots of songs you know and some new ones too!  I’ve really enjoyed planning the activities and putting the playlist together, there will be lots of bubbles, puppets, games and instruments for you and your little one to enjoy!

 Did you know that Jittabugs Rotherham is Makaton Friendly so you know the signs used are recognised in all places such as schools and nurseries etc who use Makaton.  I trained in Makaton 10 years ago and have used it whilst working with children in nursery and children’s centres.  I really love this class as it is fun and it gives you and your baby enjoyable times together whilst promoting communication between you both.  Signing can help babies to communicate their needs – are they hungry, thirsty, poorly or tired?  What do they want to play with bricks, teddy bear, ball?  We use lots of songs to learn these signs and more, to encourage communication and hopefully relieve any frustration of not being able to communicate or understand needs! 

Hope to see you in September enjoy the summer (if it comes back)
