Parent-Child Mother Goose Program coming to Barriere

Free program to be offered every Tuesday morning starting Nov. 5 in Barriere

Yellowhead Community Services and Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach say they are more than pleased to be able to announce that the free Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® will be offered in Barriere on a weekly basis starting on Tuesday, Nov. 5.  This pilot program will be offered weekly from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. for parents and children 0 to 6 years.

The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is a group experience for parents and their babies and young children which focuses on 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, and give their children healthy early experiences with language and communication.  A nutritious morning snack for parents and children is provided.  The program is facilitated by caring individuals trained in the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program.   Parent-Child Mother Goose is a free drop-in program.
