Mother Goose Program

PROGRAM FOCUS

The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program is a weekly group setting in which parents learn rhymes and songs and interact with their children to foster relationships and promote early language development.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Parents/caregivers and their pre-school aged children (infants to 4 years of age).

WHAT HAPPENS AT A MOTHER GOOSE SESSION?

 The program is group-oriented and teaching is directed at the adults.  The children participate as is appropriate to their stage of development and inclination.
 Activity focuses on interactive rhymes, stories, and songs.
 The pace is relaxed with plenty of time for repetition of material and casual discussion of issues and questions that may arise.
 The atmosphere is accepting and supportive, with the intent of building the confidence and comfort level of all participants and creating a feeling of community and mutual support within the group.
 Groups are small enough to ensure that the needs of individuals, as well as the group as a whole, can be met.
 Instructors are para-professionals, trained in the principles, materials, and methods required to facilitate the program effectively.
