Babies understand and can communicate long before they are able to speak. Research shows that babies who learn Sign Language learn quicker and talk earlier. Using songs and games learn how to teach your baby basic American Sign Language (ASL) so they can better convey their wants and needs and relieve unnecessary frustration. The instructor will teach you the signs and songs so you can practice at home. Babies can sleep during class or you can bring some toys. Newborn-24 months.
Please bring your own mat or blanket to sit on.
During Covid-19 we have been asking people to bring their own mats for Yoga and emailing the curriculum for Baby Sign Language prior to the first class. We've also been allowing only one parent/caregiver per registered child for Baby Sign Language.

SARS-COV-2, which causes the disease COVID-19, may exacerbate other health issues and is the cause of an ongoing global pandemic. SARS-COV-2 is highly communicable and dangerous.
