Our 6-week series is a fun opportunity for you to build your signing vocabulary with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more! Three playgroup series are offered, named after the primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. No need to take them in order. Just dive in and start learning now.
Babies are welcome to engage in class or with each other, or parents may come on their own if you feel you will learn the signs better that way. This is because babies will do the bulk of their learning through being exposed to signs by their caregivers in their daily routines, rather than in a class once a week, just like with spoken language.
The research shows that babies exposed to signs by the time they are 5-6 months old will begin to absorb them as language and then may begin to sign back around 8-10 months of age. For parents, learning in the newborn stage or earlier gives you enough time to learn, and then communicate.
For this reason, parents may begin to learn signs and how to seemlessly incorporate them whenever they are ready — already using them by the time baby is 5-6 months old will give baby the maximum benefits. Babies will then continue to gain new signing vocabulary to communicate thoughts and needs, as their language skills develop, so this class is appropriate through at least 18 months of age, at which point a toddler group is preferred. (If you are interested in a toddler/ preschooler group, let us know! We can work on arranging one.)
