Baby Sign Language Class coming to North Lake Tahoe
INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Light Shine Learning is offering a Baby Sign Language class at Tahoe’s Connection for Families.
The 6-week session begins Monday, March 7. Each class is from 4-4:45 p.m. in TCF’s Infant Room at 761 Northwood Blvd., Incline Village. Parents and babies attend each class together.
Kim Warren Holscher, an educator for over 15 years, used sign language in her primary aged classrooms and with her own baby.
“I truly believe in teaching babies to sign for it allows the world of communication to open before verbal skills are established,” she said. “This cuts down on frustration for both the baby and the parents.”
The cost is $100 for one adult with one child or twins, or $135 for two adults with child(ren). Materials are included and scholarships are available.
These classes are most appropriate for children between 5 months and 2.5 years and who are not yet able to articulate everything they want to say.
If you or someone you know is interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 775-250-2089.
If participants cannot attend the first class on March 7, email or call Kim so she may reserve space for you and your baby.
Light Shine Learning, based in Incline Village, offers Baby Sign Language classes and consultations for the North Lake Tahoe area.
A portion of the class proceeds will benefit TCF, a nonprofit that provides parenting education and early childhood development programs for families with infants and toddlers up to pre-school.
