Sweet Signs is an American Sign Language based program for Hearing Babies & Toddlers. It is designed to improve and ease communication between you and your pre-verbal baby.

Your baby is eager to communicate with you! Join us in our next class or workshop where you and baby can learn a valuable skill together and have fun at the same time!

At Sweet Signs we use story telling, songs and other fun activities to discover this wonderful new world. You will learn many signs, as well as how and when to introduce them to baby. You will also learn the many benefits that signing brings to the whole family!

Don’t miss this special opportunity to bond with your baby while reducing frustration for both babies and parents!

~Julie is having a wonderfully successfull time, in teaching her daughter to sign! She was signing when she was only 10 months and she is still continuing to learn at 2 1/2 years!

~Julie and her daughter Zoë have been attending Sweet Signs classes since 2004.
A certified SIGN with your BABY ® presenter. She has achieved Sign2Me ® Presenters’ Network Level I Certification, an official acknowledgement of their proficiencies and high professional standards.

Hello! My name is Julie Gropp and we are a Sweet Signing family! We started taking classes with Brandy when Zoë was just 5 months old. I have always been interested in American Sign Language and as an ECE it made perfect sense to give my child the ability to communicate at the earliest possible opportunity.

At about the same time I started to take adult American Sign Language classes and am continuing to learn. Zoë started signing at about 10 months and hasn’t really stopped (She’s 2+ now!)! I am confident that her ability to sign her needs and wants has saved us countless hours of frustration and helped her feel understood and loved.

I am really excited about helping Brandy give this opportunity to other families and I look forward to meeting many of you!
