Term 3 classes on the Southside have started.  Contact us for more details.

At Baby Signs Canberra we offer a wide variety of baby sign language classes for educators, parents, carers and their babies.

Baby Signing Classes

These classes are designed for parents and their babies to learn together in a fun and interactive way.

Parent Workshops

Suited for parents/carers wanting to learn in a workshop environment where work or other commitments mean classes are not ideal.

The Baby Signs Program

The Baby Signs program is the only baby signing program backed by research. Created by Drs. Linda Acedolo and Susan Goodwyn, the program provides families with an easy and simple method to communicate with their baby, before they talk!

The benefits of the baby signs program are numerous, therefore we invite you to explore our website, watch our video below or contact us using the contact page, so you feel confident about how the Baby Signs program will be of benefit to you and your baby.

    • Hi Grace,
      Thank you for your enquiry. I run the 6 week Sign, Say and Play course each school term. A free demonstration class is also held at the beginning of each term. Each week 6-7 Auslan signs relating to a different topic are taught, together with two parent education segments. One parent education segment relates to the child’s signing journey and the other is related to the cognitive development of children with topics taken from the Baby Signs program creators’ “Baby Minds” book. The signs are taught through flashcards, songs, stories and group activities. Each class lasts around 45 minutes. There is also the 6 week “More Sign, Say and Play” (More SSP) course which follows the same format. No prior knowledge is required for attending the “More SSP” course.

      Although you can start modelling signs to your child right from the beginning, I recommend that children join the classes from about 8 months so that they can fully participate in the classes.

      At the moment, the classes are run in the mornings during the week in Deakin and Wanniassa. However, there is possibility that a class will open up in Belconnen next term.

      I will update the website when the free demonstration class for next term is organised. Please let me know if you will be interested in attending the session and I will send you a registration form for your completion.

  1. Hi,
    I was just wondering when my baby and I would be able to join your classes? Do you have any starting before the end of the year?
    Many thanks

    • Hi Anna,
      Thank you for your enquiry. The classes are recommended for children who are 8 months or older so that they can fully participate in the class activities. Term 4 classes will start in late October/ early November. You are most welcomed to join the demonstration class that will be held in late October. Which day of the week will suit you best for the demonstration class in the week commencing 21 October?

  2. Hi,
    My son will be 8 months old on the 5th of February. I am interested in attending classes with him, will there be classes starting around then? How much will they cost?
    Thank you 🙂

    • Hi Natalie,

      Yes, the six classes in term 1, 2016 will start in early March. The cost will be $90. I will be able to confirm the time and location of the classes closer to the commencement date.

      I will send a registration form to your email address 🙂

      Kind regards,
      Venus
