Baby Signing

Here at the Carrier Academy of Learning, we encourage the teachers to teach American Sign Language to Infants and Toddlers to motivate their speech development. Researchers have found that baby signing has done wonders for teachers and parents. Young children can communicate feelings and emotions through signing before they can form words. Although they can understand many of the words they hear, they have not yet developed language skills. At times, signing can also help prevent temper tantrums due to the lack of speech and also help you to understand what the child’s needs are.

Infant Services

Baby Playing with BlocksOur Infant and toddler program is similar to our regular learning programs, but our education program consists of age-appropriate experimentation with different toys. They are stimulated through stories, music, new food, and natural elements outside. They also begin to learn and adjust to routines such as hellos and goodbyes, meal time, nap time, and more!
