Baby Time with Sign

Babies (accompanied by a favorite adult) enjoy songs, activities to promote movement, rhymes, books and playtime in each lively session. Babies and caregivers also are introduced to Baby Sign Language, a wonderful way to grow babies’ communication skills. BabyTime gives your baby the opportunity to hear lots of language while you get to know other families with young children. What is your child learning? Hearing stories and rhymes helps your baby develop language skills. Using sign language speeds babies’ language development. #pplstorytime #babytimewithsign
