Description: For babies sitting up on their own to 18 months. Many parents have questions and concerns regarding their child’s language development. They often wonder how they can help facilitate this development to ensure they are reaching milestones and to reduce frustration in both the child and care giver. These "Baby and Me" classes will consist of social play, singing, sign language, story-telling, and time for Q & A. Through these activities you as the caregiver will learn skills to facilitate early language development and emergent literacy skills. We will also discuss appropriate feeding skills and appropriate utensils and cups to use to encourage age appropriate feeding and motor skills needed for typical speech development.
