Signing Smart™ Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop
Tracey Kretzer or Laura Daub, M.A.
Encourage your child care center and/or babysitter to sign with your baby or toddler in just seconds a day and increase your child's IQ, ability to communicate, and confict resolution skills!
Here a 14 month-old child (behind teacher) signs "BALL" and the toddler gives him the ball!! No crying, no whining, no grabbing, or interrupting the teacher!
The National Institute of Health (NIH)
showed that babies & toddlers who were signed to as children had an average of
12 point higher IQ by age 8!
PCU Baby Signs CRY instead of CRYING!

& Story of "D" to an "A" School!
Faces is a non-profit organization
founded by renowned developmental psychology expert and creator of Conscious
Discipline «, a
comprehensive classroom management program and a social-emotional
curriculum. The goal of Faces is
to provide an opportunity for teachers to learn and teach Conscious Discipline «, and to understand and
utilize conflicts as opportunities to teach life skills. Through various grants
and donations, Faces will make available Conscious Discipline«
training to teachers and other individuals in at-risk groups who would not
otherwise be able to afford this life-changing educational program. Faces was established to honor the life of Frances Bailey,
an educator and the mother of Dr. Bailey.

From www.Conscious Discipline.com:
Fern Creek Elementary sometimes calls itself "the little school that could." 20% of Fern Creek's students are homeless and 80% live in poverty, yet test scores are up and behavioral outbursts are down. Watch Fern Creek's inspirational journey as they implement Conscious Discipline« and transform themselves from a "D" school troubled by difficult behavior to an
"A" school where social-emotional learning and academic achievement soar!
|Greetings Parent Child ▄ families, |
Back to school time & back to class for parents, teachers, and children ages 0-12 at Parent Child ▄!
Please help us get the word out that we have received permission to teach babies now BIRTH - age 2 for our Signing Smart™ classes. Although it is not expected or common for babies to sign back younger than 5 months-old, it IS possible, as I have learned with my Audrey 4.5 years-ago and now my Joseph. Joseph is 8 months-old, has 14 signs and says 5 words! Check our our Parent Child ▄ link on You Tube to see for yourself and share with friends!
Not sure what class to choose? See our photos & video clips of each class type - all hyper-linked below too!
