Months before they can speak, many infants can still communicate if they know some signs from American Sign Language. According to the signing experts at Nuts For Signs LLC, babies can begin signing at 5 months old—meaning they can ask for "more" or say "I'm a prodigy" without encountering a language barrier. Teachers show parents and kids how to sign during Sing, Sign & Play classes, based on the Signing Time series of videos. For youngsters between 3 months and 3 years old, the classes cover signs that refer to food and family and also go over signs for friends, feelings, and other more advanced topics.

At Thinkertots, playing and learning intertwine effortlessly during interactive sessions for youngsters from infancy through kindergarten. The educational emporium unfurls a slate of classes—each holding no more than 12 children—full of games, art projects, songs, and movements to instill the principles of reasoning, social interaction, and the math skills. Distraction-free classrooms help bulk up kids' attention spans, and warm, patient instructors help even the shyest learn the kind of language skills important to communication and problem solving. Parents attend class alongside the youngest learners, but even once kids have graduated to drop-off programs, they'll get take-home learning pages to help continue the lesson at home.
