Frequently Asked Questions

How old should my child be to attend Sign-a-Song?

Considering that we begin to talk with our children from day one, there is really no specific time to begin signing with your child. According to studies, a child around 6 months has adequate memory and cognition available to recognize signs. At around 8 months their dexterity is sufficiently developed to produce them. At Sign-a-Song children typically range from as young as 3 months to as old as 3 years.

Do you use American Sign Language at Sign-a-Song?

At Sign-a-Song, only American Sign Language vocabulary is used.

Will signing interfere with my child’s speech development?

Quite the opposite. Studies indicate that babies who sign have a strong command of language and are motivated to learn to speak .

What will be taught at Sign-a-Song?

Each week we will focus on a specific theme related to your baby’s experiences (food, animals, transportation, to name a few) and sing songs that relate to those themes. Vocabulary that has most meaning to your children will be highlighted. Repetition of songs from prior classes and sign language vocabulary will also be emphasized.

What type of music do you sing at Sign-a-Song?

We place a tremendous effort in selecting and writing songs that appeal to both children and parents alike, from quiet folk songs to bopping rock and roll.

Is each 10 week class the same?

During each 10 week session we introduce new songs and new themes. Of course there is some overlap for our more popular tunes. As a new or returning family, you would feel equally comfortable in any of our classes.

If I miss a class, can I make it up?

Yes. We offer a flexible schedule. So if you are unable to attend a class, you are invited to make it up at any of our other time slots or locations during the same ten-week session.

Do you offer a discount for twins?

Yes. For twins we do not apply the sibling rate.  Two for the price of one!
