Baby Fingers – Not Just for Babies!

BFfootiesBaby Fingers is not just for babies. We offer American Sign Language classes for kids, teens and adults – we offer music lessons and music therapy for people of all ages – we offer parent workshops and professional development for educators – we offer entertainment and edutainment for birthday parties and baby showers … and we cater to the parents/caregivers of our youngest clientele so that the adults taking care of the babies in our signature classes will be able to provide massage, music, and/or language throughout the week between classes. We love to help you find your inner child, to learn without inhibition, to explore and discover together.

Not THAT Mom.
