Early Childhood Educator Training

The goal of this program is to help child care programs of any size --big or small-- enjoy the benefits that come from incorporating signing into daily interactions between children and teachers. Three levels of training are offered-each lasting 2 to 3 hours-with games, songs, and activities liberally sprinkled through the sessions to keep teachers engaged and excited as they learn.

Becoming a Baby Signs® Certified Childcare Center demonstrates to the families you serve that you are on the cutting edge of supportive, research-based programs to enhance children’s development. Many parents now prefer centers that use sign language to support children’s communication and facilitate their children’s language and pre-reading abilities.


These workshops are based on the work of Dr. Linda Acredolo and Dr. Susan Goodwyn, authors of the best-selling book, BABY SIGNS: How to Talk with Your Baby Before Your Baby Can Talk, and is supported by 20 years of research.

Proven benefits of the program are:
• Reduces tears and tantrums
• Decreases biting and other aggressive behaviors
• Builds trust between babies and teachers
• Helps caregivers be more observant and responsive
• Promotes positive emotional development
• Provides a common language for teachers, babies and parents in bilingual settings
• Supports language and cognitive development

Once you have successfully completed the training, you will become a Baby Signs® Certified Childcare Center and can use the Baby Signs® Program to enhance the effectiveness of your curriculum.


Training workshops are tailored to your needs.  Core training and follow-up sessions are scheduled as needed.

Tina Voci, your local certified instructor, will present the training and show the staff how to use the resource materials to address the areas of cognitive, physical, social, emotional, and language development within their current curriculum. The sessions are designed to be fun as well as informative, with games, songs, and activities liberally sprinkled through the sessions to keep teachers engaged and excited as they learn.


There are 3 levels of training to choose from, according to what works best for your center.  You can pick the classroom kits and training level independently from one another.
