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 “more”. To sign the word “more”, make an “O” shape with each hand and tap together repeatedly.
You may have noticed that your toddler is becoming much more physically active. This month we will be challenging your toddler to be on the move. This movement is essential for developing strong muscles needed to master gross motor skills.
This month, your child will learn basic shapes, work on understanding same versus different, and identify his favorite foods.
This month, your child will describe the size of various objects, listen to different types of music, and learn about healthy sleep, food and exercise habits.
This month, your child will connect events in stories to his own life experiences, identify numerals 0-59 on a digital clock, and learn the roles of various community helpers.
