Gentle, interactive workshop using Baby Signing to help families who have experienced new parent depression to bond and engage.
Not every parent has an instant bond with their little one. Sometimes life events can interrupt developing bonds and reconnecting can be hard. Sometimes the bond just needs a little help to develop. Sometimes post-natal depression makes it feel like a bond is impossible.
This course will show parents how to use simple BSL-based baby signing to build and strengthen bonds and create secure, confident, respectful relationships long into the future.
The workshop will include practical parenting advice, tips on how to reduce crying and tantrums, as well as an opportunity to share support around coping with the mental and emotional challenges of being a new parent.
This is a gentle, interactive and relaxed class for families with children aged 3months - 3 years. Based on proven speech and language development techniques to help parents and carers learn how to give their little ones a real head start in life.
The class has gave me a great tool to help comunicate with my son. It was fun and friendly and Jo was so great with our babies. The parenting tips were so good, I have learned so much more than to comunicate through signs.
Jo is a lovely and amazing teacher. You can tell she loves what she is doing. She is great with the Toddlers and really engages with them. My son loves her!
Love this class! Jo is a great teacher and my toddler has picked up several signs after only a couple of months, which is making communication a lot easier!

Hi, my name is Jo and I'm your baby signing teacher for North London. We started signing with our son when he was 6 months old and had LOUD opinions on most things whenever he was awake ;) Now, at just over two years old, he is a wonderful chatterbox. Signing has put him well ahead of the curve on his speech, language and motor skills, and he signs and sings all day long :) I’m excited to be able to help you on your baby signing adventures and look forward to meeting you and your little one soon, Jo x
