In our infant program, we start using baby sign language from the earliest months. Baby signs are common terms that have been modified and simplified from American Sign Language. The sign for this month is “Mommy”. To sign the word “mommy” tap your thumb on your chin repeatedly.
This month your toddler will begin to develop an increased self-awareness and awareness of others.
This month, your child will answer “what,” “where” and “yes/no” questions, identify one object versus many, and learn the names of community helpers.
This month, your child will learn to whisper, name basic three-dimensional shapes, describe how objects are similar and different, and name and explore the five sense.
This month, your child will learn to describe people or objects in more detail, describe a story’s main characters and setting, and identify objects associated with fire safety.
