Early Years settings Signing Workshops and Classes

Signing Classes for Nurseries, Pre-school, playgroups, school nurseries and reception, childminders and nannies in Hertfordshire.


Good communication skills are vital to allow positive and effective learning.

The use of sign language in Early Years and school settings is rising dramatically because of its benefits in supporting and encouraging communication in babies and children. Creating an inclusive environment, provides the child and the practitioners a fun way to learn together thus encouraging their understanding, learning, memory and expressive skills.

Using signing in your setting can enhance learning to focus on communication and language skills. In addition, it can also support physical development and confidence in every child.  In fact, our programmes incorporate several areas of the areas of learning and development as recommended in the DofE’s Statutory Framework for the Early Years.

Many settings who have incorporated signing into their classroom environment are seeing the benefits in how children are learning and behaving.  Would you like to be one of these?



EYFS Practitioner Training Workshops


Training Workshops


EYFS in action 

We have developed a series of three 2.5 hour comprehensive training workshops to teach you how to implement signing in your daily interactions effectively. Through a choice of either an in-house training workshop or by sending individual members of staff/practitioners to one of our seminars.

We at The Signing Company can help you to implement signing successfully into your setting by teaching you all the signs that are used in every day conversation along with understanding how it all works!

What our clients say:


“Using basic signing with our 2 and 3 years’ olds has been so useful in strengthening children's communication skills and confidence. All the children, including ones with good speech, are very quick to learn the signs. All staff attended an initial workshop so the use of signing in the setting is consistent. The Signing Teacher and Signing Sam delivered a 10-week block of lessons at a level ideal for the children and we look forward to doing it again. We used fund raising money to pay for lessons and will consider using EYPP funds for further lessons - great fun and money well spent!”
