The end of September is upon us, fall is here and the Parent-Child Mother Goose (PCMG) program is back again for their 10 week fall session. Here is hoping everyone had a great summer.  Many times the question is asked; “just what is Mother Goose?” The national PCMG website describes the Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® as 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 Parent-Child Mother Goose is a FREE drop-in program.

The Parent Child Mother Goose program is facilitated by Miette Koeneman. Miette is an Early Childhood Educator who has taken the Mother Goose training and who also works at the Little Stars Daycare here in Barriere.

The Mother Goose program is now being held here in Barriere on Mondays in the gym at the Ridge School, (now Municipal Hall at 4936 Barriere Town Road) from 10 – 11 a.m. For more information you can call Yellowhead Community Services at 250-672-9773. Their office is open Monday to Thursday 9 a.m. – noon, or 1 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. The Parent-Child Mother Goose program is generously supported by Yellowhead Community Services and Barriere and Area Literacy Outreach programs.

“We look forward to welcoming new friends and old friends alike!” says Miette. Now we’ve covered who, what, where and when. So come on down and we can show you the how, how much fun it can be!
