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.  When babies are around 13 to 14 months old and expressing many signs, parents often enroll in the alternate series as a refresher course to grow their vocabulary.

*It is recommended that you enroll in the Introductory Workshop prior to taking this playgroup series.

Little Folkies Music Class

Little Folkies is a recreational song-circle for kids and parents created in San Francisco and instructed by active Bay Area musicians. This class features a repertoire of uplifting and down-to-earth folk tunes, both original and traditional, often accompanied by hand-movements, clapping, instrumental jamming, and dancing. These Appalachian / bluegrass inspired songs, composed by class creators Irena and Joshua Smith are favorites amongst families from Little Folkies classes, and are ripe for singing throughout your week to accompany a myriad of everyday activities.

Each class features only acoustic instruments like guitar, banjo and ukulele, a delightful array of nature inspired folk songs for children as well as hands on jamming on child sized instruments like accordions, xylophones, percussion, etc. Students also get instrumental recordings of class material to accompany singing at home.

They will be providing the students with an introduction to cultures and traditions from all over the world, encouraging them to be respectful to others. Stories can come from the world’s oral traditions, fables, parables, fairy tales, folktales, myths and legends. Using the art of storytelling as well as the use of specially chosen books they bring each story to life. Sometimes this will include the use of puppets and other visual aids. Other times it may incorporate the use of song, dance and/or theater.  These drop-in classes are $10 per family.
