Sign language for babies & toddlers. We are taking this 8 week class a 2nd time. Its a fun play class with basic signs from American Sign Language. Its great because your child can communicate things to you sooner then they would be able to say it!
Music class offered in Santa Cruz, Capitola, Los Gatos, Cupertino, Saratoga, and Campbell for babies through 5 years. We love it!
About Music Together:
Music Together is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them. First offered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement.
Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Music Together introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.
