Class Schedules and Pricing

*Classes are designed with your busy schedule in mind.  You don’t need to attend classes or sessions in order.  Each class teaches new signs and you might even learn a few bonus signs from classes you have missed.  But come on, why miss a class? – have I mentioned the cool moms/caregivers?  If enough dads show up, I will happily change that to cool dads/moms/caregivers!


WORKSHOPS!

Terrific Twos!  Taming the Tantrum

(Children ages 18 months - 3 years with a parent/caregiver)


Class Description:  This workshop will teach your child to communicate FEELINGS to you with basic signs.  You can expect to learn “sad”, “happy”,"excited" and several others.  In addition to learning these signs through play, song, and story time, we'll share tips on getting child to recognize these emotions and communicate them to you.  Even if your child can vocalize the word “sad”, this workshop will further help him/her understand the concept.  Why am I sad?  How can mommy help?
