Little Signers Club; Hong Kongbabysigning classes with Jess for tinies, toddlers and talkers
Hi, I’m Jess and I’m your Little Signers Club teacher for Hong Kong!
Some of you might already know me from Rhyme Time, and may have guessed at my love of baby signing from the fact I tend to include signs in the songs!
My first experience with baby signing was with my daughter when she was 8 months old. I had heard so many good things about the benefits of signing with babies and small children – enhanced pre-verbal communication leading to reduced stress (for them and you!), earlier and more complex language and literacy skills, increased bonding, self-esteem and confidence for both of you – the list goes on, and I was keen to try it for myself!
The classes were brilliant and soon became the favourite part of our week. Not only was the programme clear, well-structured and enjoyable, but I also got to hang out with other mums, do something amazing with my daughter, enhance my ability to parent responsively, and empower her, all at the same time! When our son arrived, we automatically included signing as part out of our communications with him from day one.
In the intervening years, in addition to the happy memories of those early classes, I’ve subsequently had a lot of experience with the need for, and importance of, non-verbal communication within the field of SEN education for early years learning and parenting.
So I finally decided to fulfil a dream that was inspired all those years ago by the lovely LSC classes, and trained as a baby signing teacher myself. I now look forward to having the opportunity to share this wonderful form of communication with you and your little ones.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please feel free to get in touch.

Sing, Sign and Rhyme classes are generally split into non-movers and movers sessions – please check with your Little Signers Club Leader
Not Just for Babies!
Each class is very well structured, focusing on a different topic area each week (e.g. food and drink, going to the doctors, animals) and using songs, rhymes and stories to help cement the signs in your head and engage the little ones.
The classes aren’t just for my baby! I’m learning a new skill which is encouraging me to use my brain (important when sometimes the most challenging thing you deal with on a daily basis as a stay at home mum is separating the whites from the coloureds for a wash).
A Mesmerising Experience!
Little Signers Club has helped my little one understand everyday needs and challenges whilst learning new words and having fun.
It has also involved my eldest son Jack every step of the way (He has learn some new signs too!) and I also got to socialise with some other lovely mummies and share our weekly trials & signing experiences.
Less Frustration For Us Both
My daughter, Iris and I absolutely LOVE our weekly Little Signers Club class.
The class is so positive and welcoming and Iris loves it.
Since we’ve been going to babysigning classes I’ve noticed a massive leap in Iris’ development. She communicates more easily to tell me what she wants in everyday situations – meaning less frustration for us both.
