Classes and Programs

 

At Baby Fingers we offer the following:Class-baby

Our signature Sign and Song classes for babies and toddlers with a grown-up.

Learn American Sign Language through songs and play with other parents, educators, and/or children close to your child’s age. Go home each week with new vocabulary and new tunes to enhance communication between you and your child! Whether you intend to incorporate sign language in your life for the long term or simply during this pre-verbal/developing verbal time, watch in awe as your child discovers the world of language. See the research come to life, as music and sign language both aid in the development of language and literacy. Baby Fingers programs incorporate the research supporting the benefits of sign language at all ages and stages, for children with and without special needs. Stories, songs, games, and movement to music are included in our teaching methods. Give the gift of communication and bond with your baby at Baby Fingers.

Sign Language enrichment for day care, preschool, after school programs.

Offer American Sign Language as a primary language or enrichment class at your school or facility. We can bring in our own curriculum or complement yours. Signs can assist with transitions, problem solving, and classroom routines while helping to solidify new concepts and vocabulary. Provide an outlet for self-expression and early communication while children learn a new language that sets the foundation for later language learning and bridges the gap between two spoken languages. Our teachers can provide this instruction through “voice-off” immersion, creative and dramatic play, songs and stories, yoga and dance, art, or a combination of these methods.

Sign and Stretch.

This unique program focuses on getting your workout while bonding with your child through yoga and other creative movement, songs, and sign language. Parents and caregivers will feel rejuvenated while gaining a greater understanding of their baby’s or toddler’s amazing physical development, as well as tools to enhance language and communication. Walkers can be introduced to thematic units, tying together yoga poses with ASL vocabulary. Exercise your brain and body along with your child! The possibility for adventures while learning are endless! OUR SIGN & STRETCH TEACHERS ARE CERTIFIED TO TEACH YOGA AND THE BABY FINGERS SIGN LANGUAGE CURRICULUM.
