Parent-Child Mother Goose sessions starting on Friday, Jan. 26 in Barriere

The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is a group experience for parents and their babies and young children (birth to six years old) 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.

The Parent-Child Mother Goose is a FREE drop-in program.
