Playgroup Series Six 60 minute sessions  |  4 to 18 months

This six-week playgroup is a fun opportunity for you to build your signing vocabulary with themes like mealtime, animals, colors, family, bedtime, and more.  Two different playgroup series are offered for an increased opportunity to practice and build your signing vocabulary.  One is called Playgroup Zoom and the other is called Playgroup Boom.  No need to take them in order; you can start with either Zoom or Boom.  Both Playgroup Boom and Playgroup Zoom include the essential basic starter signs and vary in the more advanced vocabulary.

Class Descriptions

Little Folkies Music Class

Little Folkies is a folk music class for children ages 0-5 and their grown-ups. The classes are mixed ages with babies, toddlers preschoolers, parents, grandparents and caregivers all getting together every week and singing together like one big family! After the first few weeks the students gets more and more comfortable and familiar with the music and by the end of the semester everyone is singing along and doing the movement to the songs. Even the little ones join in and although some may be shy in class they’ll usually sing the songs like nobody’s watching in the comfort of their home. The sound of everyone's voices ringing together and the sweet, gentle and simple songs with lyrics easy enough for baby and grandma to sing along to is soothing to the child and creates positive early musical memories for them which they’ll carry with them throughout their life. Here at Little Folkies we share the knowledge that music is at the core of every human being, and we believe that all children should experience genuine, heart felt, acoustic music making which will increase their musical confidence and give them a healthy relationship to music right from the start.
