Baby Sign Language
Tutor Time Child Care offers a Baby Sign Language Program in our Infant rooms. This program helps our infants to communicate their needs to our teachers in our classrooms, as well as, the parents at home.
The Benefits of signing with infants:
- Strengthens the bond between the teacher and the child
- Creates a new awareness of a preverbal baby’s potential
- Stimulates intellectual development
- Enhances infant self-esteem
- Accelerates verbal language development
- Provides a window into the baby’s world
Our infant teachers are trained in Baby Sign Language and will start to introduce sings slowly as a baby is ready to understand the idea. New signs are added when the baby is ready for the next sign. Some of the basic signs that are tought are; “More” “Thirsty” “Hungry” “Up” “Down” and others.
Kinderdance is here at Tutor Time!
Kinderdance programs consist of a developmentally appropriate program that teachs various forms of movement and dance. The programs encourage the development of gross motor skills, body awareness, strength and coordination.
At Tutor Time classes are available for 3-5 year-old girls and boys: Kinderdance® offers the basics of ballet and tap dance and are taught along with creative movement, acrobatics and motor skills.
