FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) - Nancy Jayne

Do the Baby Signing Classes include parents and babies?
 Parents and baby can come to the class. Sometimes I have both Mom and Dad come in and sometimes just the Mom. They don't have to bring a baby if they choose not to. Sometimes I even have grandparents bring in a baby.
At what age should babies start learning Sign Language?
 The age babies start to sign can be as young as 6 months or even up to 2 years old. An ideal time I would say is around 8 or 9 months. But I have babies of all ages come in.
Generally, how many are in a baby signing class?
 I keep the class size small. The most I like to see in a class is 6. Classes can be larger or smaller though.
When are Baby Signing classes held and when can I register?
 My classes are every other month, usually on a Monday night. Registration goes on all the time, just contact me and I'll send you the forms.
Is there a cost for the classes?
 There is a fee for the classes, but all money is donated to the church.
