Baby signing is designed specifically for our youngest students ages 6 weeks through 2 years old. The program teaches simple sign techniques for eat, milk, more, all done, thank you, and many others. By reinforcing key spoken words with sign, educators provide the children with messages both orally and visually, helping to focus the child’s attention while strengthening the child’s understanding of the words and concepts. By arming these young children with the power to communicate their needs, they are able express themselves, and reduce frustration caused from not being understood. Not only is your infant able to communicate their basic needs but they are able to recognize symbols and signs can represent other things which is an understanding that is essential before beginning to read.
we use Spanish in our everyday language and introduce children to it in a more natural way. Children retain the information and understand its use in context when it is presented this way. Our teachers take the opportunity to teach the calendar in both Spanish and English; we play games and replace English colors with the Spanish word for each color; we line up by counting in Spanish. The children learn fun songs such as Cabeza, Hombros, Rodillas, y Pies (Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes), Months of the Year Song, and the Days of the Week Song in Spanish. Spanish is incorporated in our lesson plans and activities throughout the entire day. We believe introducing the children to Spanish repeatedly during various time during the day, the children will absorb the language better and more accurately than traditional Spanish teaching programs.

Sensory art builds foundational skills that are crucial for children's development. It is one of the most important kinds of early learning experiences we can offer to our infants and toddlers.
Sensory play encourages learning through exploration, curiosity, problem solving and creativity. It helps to build nerve connections in the brain and encourages the development of language and motor skills.
