friendship570x322In the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program, parents and young children between the ages of 0 and 4 come together to enjoy songs, rhymes and stories.

Each group of parents and children meets with two teachers once a week throughout the year.  Together, parents and children in the program:

  • experience the spark of delight and magic that comes from enjoying a favourite rhyme or song
  • learn and retain a repertoire of rhymes, songs and stories
  • enjoy strengthened bonding

These skills, pleasures and insights are taken home and shared with older children, grandparents, and other parents.  The whole family benefits!
