Volunteer programs

Baby Sign Time- Monday's at 9:30am.    宝宝手势时间-周一9:30am

We need volunteers to help with this class!  If you are available Monday mornings, please contact Jessica and let us know if you can join.  All that is needed to participate is a willingness to hold the children on your lap and engage them as the video and leader direct.  We need a one-to-one volunteer to baby ratio for this class, so the more volunteers, the more babies that can participate! 



Music Time- Tuesday's at 2:30pm   音乐课-周二2:30pm

Through percussion,  parachute, and dress-up play, we aim to help the babies develop their cognitive, motor, and social skills; expand their imaginations; and build a lifelong love of music.  



Art Class- Friday's at 9:30am   艺术课-周五9:30am

Art class is going great and the kids are having a blast. Come on over if you'd like to join in the fun.



 Toddler classes are Monday, Wednesdays, and Friday from 2:30-4:30pm and Tuesdays from 9:00-11:30am.


Our older children at SHH attend weekly "class" time. They do crafts, sing songs, listen to stories, and learn ABCs and numbers. Volunteers are welcome to assist the teacher with their classes. Contact Jessica at  if you are interested in helping.
