The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is a group experience which focuses on the pleasure and power of parents and their babies and young children 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 to give their children healthy early experiences with language and communication. The Program is aimed at families in need of support for a variety of reasons. There is no cost to the parents who participate.
