Mother Goose Program
The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is a group experience for parents and their babies and young children. The program introduces adults and children to the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs, and stories together.
Parents gain skills and confidence which can enable them to create positive family patterns during their children’s crucial early years. Children benefit from enjoyable, healthy early experiences with language and communication.
Join us and meet with other parents of babies under one year old to sing, chat and play. A trained Family Support worker will facilitate the discussions when questions come up around child development, or issues around being a mom. The Facilitator will provide current information and can teach Mother Goose rhymes and songs.
This program runs every Fridays 12 noon to 2 p.m.
For more information , contact Renee at email@example.com
Note: All parents with babies and children under five are welcome to come to the Family Drop-in Programs.
