Baby Sign Language @ Blue Bird Day School · Jun 16, 2018

Parent University

Babies use many ways to communicate!  Gestures and signs are a natural part of language learning. Research studies show that early signing is a proven way to help many young children develop beginning language skills! Parents and caregivers will learn basic signs to use in play and songs in order to promote and aid functional communication with each other.  You will learn and practice:

  • - Functional signs to use during the daily routine
  • - Signs to use during an interactive story time
  • - Signs to use during children’s songs
