Infants, Wobblers & Toddlers Classes

Children learning sign language with a teacher.

Sign & Play Class

Use sign language to connect with your child while promoting early communication and language development on a daily basis.  American Sign Language vocabulary is taught to help your child express their wants, needs, and thoughts before they’re able to verbally communicate. 

  • Classes meet weekly and will focus on theme-based vocabulary (using American Sign Language) including movement, literacy, and hands-on learning opportunities
  • Children will learn signs for animals, ABC’s, colors, counting, shapes, and much more.
  • Many children in these classes are already talking, signs are used as a tool to introduce new concepts and vocabulary.
