As part of The Signing Company, I teach signing for babies and signing for toddlers at St. Andrew's Rooms in Biggleswade, Lakeview Village Hall in Wixams, The Stables at The White Horse, Ampthill and
Woodentops Pre-school, Potton.
Sign language is an inspirational communication tool that has been used by Deaf people for centuries. So many people say that they are captivated when they see sign language being used, and that they would dearly love to possess this skill. The Signing Company was born out of desire to make this skill accessible to all, from babies to 101. I believe that even with the most basic signing knowledge, everyone has the tools to communicate more effectively in everyday life. Moreover, when learning occurs in a fun and stimulating environment, then positive learning takes place.
I am Jules. I am Mummy to two amazing girlies, Holly (8) and Lois (6).
I have always been interested in sign language. I find it fascinating that people who are not able to verbally communicate or hear spoken language can communicate using their hands.
I have been a classroom teacher for 12 years now and although I thoroughly enjoy it, I struggle to find the right work life balance. Working for The Singing Company is ideal for me, I love working with babies and young children. Seeing them making progress in something that I have taught them is incredibly rewarding. I will also have the time and opportunities to still be there for my own family which is my main priority.
During my nursery nurse training I was fortunate enough to work with a young child who had Down Syndrome. Here I learnt Makaton and how to finger spell. It was such a joy to see this young child using his hands to communicate to help us meet his needs. I am now expanding my learning by completing a BSL course.
My journey with The Signing Company is just beginning, but I am so excited about the future. I am looking forward to helping parents and children learn to sign and helping babies learn to communicate too.
