No one is handed an instruction manual when they become a parent. Central to our mission is the idea that if parents are informed of the latest research and best practices, they can more easily do their job and help their young families thrive! Therefore workshops are held throughout the year helping parents answer questions like “Is my child Kindergarten ready?”, “My child is reading! Now what?”, “How will signing with my baby make a difference”.

I absolutely love this class! I can't wait for the next session to start! Mrs. Chris is thoughtful, patient, kind, knowledgeable and so much more! My son enjoys the class and so do I. We love the crafts at the end too! We recommend this class to as many people as we can!

22 month old son
We've used baby sign language with our hearing son since birth and are delightfully stunned at how much signing has supported his overall language development. He consistently far-surpasses language milestones. We especially love that he's been able to express his needs to us from a much earlier age than his peers. We all love Chris' signing classes, especially seeing our son having so much fun playing games and singing songs. We plan to continue."
We signed with our son before he could speak and it brought us so much closer together. Baby signs also helped decrease our parental stress, because we knew what our baby wanted!!
