There are three different kinds of Alphatots sessions, each of them fun classes that each introduce children to different aspects of early language (including sign language), reading, and writing skills.

There is overlap between the ages for Alphatots classes, as different children are ready for different activities at different times!  Choose which one suits your little one best...

Age 0-2: Alphatots Sounds & Signs

For babies and toddlers, to develop listening skills, language skills (including sign language), and phonological awareness.  These sessions are gentle sessions including lots of singing.  Activities take place sitting together in a circle, with multi-sensory elements to keep wandering minds entertained!

Age 2-4: Alphatots Phonics

For toddlers and preschoolers who are able to speak confidently and follow instructions, these sessions teach a new letter of the alphabet each week.  They are more active than Alphatots Sounds & Signs, involving getting up and about around the room finding things, posting things, not to mention jumping, twirling, and dancing!

Age 3-5: Alphatots Wordsmiths

For toddlers and pre-schoolers who already know all their letter sounds!  Active sessions with Ronnie Robot, learning to read short words and do some fun writing activities.
