Kindermusik: Our Time at Parent Child U
Click to see video!

My wife registered us for Kindermusic and I had no idea what it was.  But after the first class, we enrolled for another two sessions; the baby, my wife and I loved it so

What we love is having a time to stop and sing with our daughter and the rest of the families in the class.  We enjoy the social aspect of Kindermusic for our daughter to interact with other children as well as parents.

We sing the songs we learn in Kindermusic at home and listen to the cd's which accompany the class, as well as reading the books which are also class materials.

Miss Tracey Kretzer is an excellent instructor and class leader.  Full of good energy and love for children, she leads us in song and movements.

Kindermusic is introducing our daughter to music and the creativity of making up her own music.  It is making music a regular part of our family life.  Kindermusic is an outstanding and joyful family event.  I highly recommend  Kindermusic to everyone

Do you find yourself wanting?
  • A window into your infant / toddler's mind?
  •  To reduce frustration and temper tantrums?
  • Your toddler to do more than just grunt, point, & cry?
  • To have real conversations, starting at 8-12 months (or even 6 months)?
  • To increase your child's long-term learning potential and IQ (NIH showed a 12 point IQ gain by age 8 in one study)? 

 ...then Signing Smart is for you!

Infant & Toddler Teacher Workshop
Presented by
Tracey Kretzer, MS, LPSC
Lincensed Signing Smart Instructor since 2006

Every teacher must take ongoing classes to keep their license up to date. Why not recommend this class to your child care provider today?   
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 conflict resolution skills!   
Toddler asks for BALL by signing instead of crying or grabbing!  
 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!

A Note from Miss Tracey :)
Dear Parent Child ▄ Friends & Supporters,

We have a drop off class for your 3-5 year-old child. You are welcomed back for story time, instrument play, performances, and circle dances each week
- not just the last class!
