PSI and The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program
PSI is so very proud and honoured to have the opportunity to contribute to the The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program.
As a national program, Parent-Child Mother Goose has been helping families and professionals across the country enhance the parent-child relationship for more than 20 years. And here, in British Columbia, the BC Council for Families is proud to continue that tradition of excellence.
Now hosted at the James Bay Community Project ( 547 Michigan Street, Victoria BC V8V 1S5), The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program is a group experience for parents and their babies and young children, aimed at learning how to harness the power of singing, rhyming, and telling stories to connect with young children to support their social, cognitive and emotional development.
Introducing adults and children to the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs, and stories together, the Mother Goose Program helps parents gain skills and confidence which can enable them to create positive family patterns during their children’s crucial early years, while children benefit from enjoyable, healthy early experiences with language and communication.
It all starts by focusing on your infant or toddler though the simple interactive power of story and song. Come and learn some songs, stories, rhymes, and finger plays to play with your baby from birth to 12 months. It’s a fun and relaxing ten-week program run by a trained facilitator. A healthy snack is served for parents and babies. The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program is FREE and runs several times per year.
The program is currently full. The Mother Goose Program is offered when funding becomes available. A healthy snack is served for parents and babies.
There is a long wait-list always and is a great opportunity for mothers to socialize and access parent education and learn how to stimulate their babies’ cognitive development – so get in line asap and write yourself down!
