Baby Garten Studio

If you've ever wondered how early your little bubs may begin communicating with you, you should check out the sign language classes offered by the brick and mortar Baby Garten. Classes here are the real deal, since a majority of the classes are taught by Monta Z. Braint, author of Baby Sign Language Basics: Early Communication for Hearing Babies and Toddlers. Signing times are divided into Baby Sign Language Basics (6 - 24 months) and Baby Sign Advanced (walking toddler/preschooler). Not only are up to 20 signs learned each week, activities like parachute time, bubbles and puppets are incorporated into the classes to get even the shyest or youngest movers excited about practicing early communication. Class sessions range between $80 and $282.
