Baby Sign Language Series
Stop guessing what your baby is trying to tell you and start spending more time fulfilling your child's specific needs. Baby Sign Language gives parents the opportunity to communicate with children long before babies can verbalize their wants and needs. Research studies show that signing with babies accelerates language acquisition, reduces frustration and aggressive behavior, and as children mature, results in a greater interest in reading. Out of all the wonderful benefits of baby sign language, the most important benefit of all is that signing will greatly deepen the bond between you and your child.
Expectant parents, and babies from birth to 18 months old are welcome to attend these series.
What you will learn
This 6-week series class is a fun opportunity for you to build your signing vocabulary with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more! We've split 18 sessions into three different six-day series named after the primary colors: Red, Yellow, and Blue. No need to take them in order. Just dive in and start learning now.
Our Introductory Workshop is recommended prior to taking a playgroup series unless you are already familiar with American Sign Language (ASL).
New 2020 Themes ~ RED, YELLOW, BLUE

Not everyone may be able to make it to all the classes. With vacations and unexpected illnesses it's rare that everyone attends every playgroup. For this reason we have formatted each hour long lesson plan to spend thirty minutes reviewing all the vocabulary that we learned the previous week. Happy Baby Signs does not offer make up classes. You are welcome to bring your baby, but it is not required.
