Current Offerings

Foundation Series

During this 6-class series you will build a great foundation of Baby Sign Language. This will help you succeed on your journey of pre-verbal communication with your little one.

We’ll begin with the basic hand shapes of the alphabet and numbers 1 through 10. Then we’ll cover the essential signs you need to know to reduce frustration and lessen tantrums. You’ll also learn how to incorporate signing into your daily life and to make it enjoyable for both you and your baby. We'll also talk about sign approximations, other baby sign languages, reading strategies, and answer questions such as “When will my baby start signing?” All of this and more will be taught through a mixture of children’s books, songs, games and discussions.

Each 45-minute class begins with an opportunity for families to share their signing experience and review the signs from the previous class before moving on to new material. We end with our well-loved bubble time! Support materials will be available to take home including a binder to keep everything in. Baby will receive a certificate of completion.

Age: Birth - preschool.

Signing Story Time

This interactive 45-minute presentation is a great place to start your Baby Sign Language journey. Scheduled at several San Diego Public Library branches throughout the week, this free offering uses the excitement and fun of beloved children's books and songs to teach basic American Sign Language for pre-verbal communication. We'll go over signs related to the theme of the week and you'll get a chance to meet other families interested in signing with their babies.

The last 15 minutes of the program are reserved for one-on-one Question & Answer time. Adults come for the signs and their little ones come for the bubbles! No registration is required.

Age: Birth - preschool.
