"Our Parent Child University class is so much fun and we've all learned so much.  Miss Tracey combines sign language, music and positive parenting lessons in such a fun and easy environment.  Through the music, my 15 month-old is quickly picking up signs and communicating more easily at home.  Thank you , Miss Tracey!"
