9 MONTHS + SIGN, SING, & PLAY

Who wants to Sign, Sing, & Play with their littles?

Designed to educate through fun and interaction, each session corresponds with a specific area of daily life by bringing together relevant signing education with music and movement to fully engage the learning process for your child.

As a music educator, Shira knows that children are drawn to music and learn best through movement; music stimulates different parts of the brain, immersing the child in language and developing memory, while movement develops their coordination.

Your Tiny Talker(s) will:

  • Activate learning through music and movement
  • Develop their imagination, problem solving, and social skills
  • Show you insight to their thoughts before they learn to speak

We will:

  • Deliver demonstrations and strategies
  • Illustrate how to get your Tiny Talkers’ attention for signing education
  • Show you how to recognize your child’s first signs
  • Troubleshoot with you and offer our expertise over the last 15+ years in signing education

As you progress through the classes, continued learning at home will take on a natural rhythm and verbal language development will be more easily achieved.
