Baby and Toddler Signing

Baby and Toddler Sign and Sing 

Baby Signing has been around for about 30-40 years, and has become increasingly popular in the past 10 years.


Baby Signing is a wonderful way to communicate with your baby. It bridges the communication gap, helping babies to show their parents what they want, what they are thinking, or how they are feeling, before they can talk.


Benefits of Baby and Toddler Signing:

Empowers baby to communicate early

Boosts self-esteem

Reduces frustrations

Compliments language and speech development

Encourages bonding and interaction

Can help parent understand what baby wants/needs

Parents can learn new rhymes and songs

Teaches the parents a skill too.
