In a recent podcast on the BC Council for Families website, Cindy Pete and Lorinda Seto, Aboriginal Infant Development Program Workers with Aboriginal Child and Family Support Services Society in Vancouver, a part of the Vancouver Native Health Society, discuss their work with the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program. Listen in!
In December, 2014 Canada’s National Council for the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program held its Annual General Meeting and released its Annual Report for 2014. Among the initiatives we’ve undertaken recently is an ambitious fundraising campaign. The goal? To be able to keep on advocating for Parent Child-Mother Goose, maintaining certification and training standards as well as high standards of program delivery across the country, and to continue to ensure that Parent-Child Mother Goose is delivered free of charge to families in communities throughout Canada (we told you it was ambitious!).
We’re pleased to announce that as of February 1, 2015, a total of $1,700 has already been donated to help support the National Parent-Child Mother Goose Program! We’re thrilled at the wonderful response and by the recognition from our supporters of the key role that the National Parent-Child Mother Goose Program plays in keeping teachers and agencies across the country informed, up-to-date, and engaged in providing the highest quality free community programming for parents and their young children. Now we’re asking you (our online readers) to help keep the momentum going!
Visit our CanadaHelps campaign page to make an online donation to show your support for Parent-Child Mother Goose! Now donation is too small — we’re a small, volunteer-run organization, and just a few dollars from you today can make a big contribution to our work all year long.
Thanks for your support!
Check out these two videos from Make Children First, a Kamloops BC community coalition that works to enhance the ability of the community to support children and their families. The videos feature Maureen Doll, the Kamloops Early Language and Literacy Initiative Coordinator. Both videos make a strong case for the value of Parent-Child Mother Goose programs!
