Testmonial  The class tonight was fantastic!  Peyton and I just loved it - especially the games and songs. :)  I have to admit I couldn't remember "you are my sunshine" when I tried to sing it to him just an hour after class!  My goodness - that's mommy brain.  We did do lots of signs around the house - hat, dog, cat, fish, eat, milk, drink... it was great. He had peas for dinner.  It was so helpful to do it in person and I loved having a houseful of babies.

Is this a class for babies or parents?  This class was developed for parents to learn signs in a baby friendly atmosphere.  Strategies for parents to use signs, paired with speech, in natural contexts such as during meals, bath time, or while at play will be discussed.  Since we cannot expect the babies to focus on a full length lesson nor leave a class having learned all the signs from the one exposure, our focus is to ensure the adults have learned the signs so they are able to provide adequate exposure and repetition of these signs to their children in context.  While the adults are learning, the children are playing among us with toys that represent the signs we are learning, providing the perfect opportunity to introduce some of those signs to them in context.
