Open a window into your baby's mind and personality!
Welcome Parents, Grandparents, and Caregivers!
My name is Monta Briant, and I am the author of the best-selling "Baby Sign Language Basics" books and learning materials. In 2001 I began teaching the first public Early Communication or "Baby Sign Language" classes, in San Diego. The signs I use in my classes are REAL signs, borrowed from the Deaf Communities' beautiful language, American Sign Language.
At my own Baby Garten Studio in South Park, I offer Parent Workshops and Sign, Sing, and Play classes where you'll learn all the in's and out's of Baby Sign Language. My Sign, Sing, and Play classes are the best way to motivate your baby to sign, hands-down! The personal attention you receive from your instructor, small class size, and exposure to many signs during a variety of super-fun activities, motivates babies to sign and gives parents plenty of fun ideas to keep signing fun and interesting at home too. You can get more information and register at www.BabySignLanguageBasics.com
I started the Baby Sign Language Basics Storytime Meetup as a way for families who have learned through my classes, books and videos to expose their children to more signs in a fun, large-group setting. With most meeting times geared towards toddlers-preschoolers, the performance combines American Sign Language with stories, music, and fun toys/props that reinforce the monthly theme.
PLEASE NOTE: Because they are free, most of our and open to the general public via the libraries, our Meetups are very, very popular. For younger infants, it is recommended to come to a noon-time Meetup, or better yet, come to our small-group Sign, Sing, and Play series at our spotlessly clean and beautiful Baby Garten Studio, where you will get individual attention, and learn all you need to know to open a window into your baby's mind and personality.
Please feel free to email me with any questions you may have.
I look forward to meeting you at a class soon!: )
