Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® at EACH

Join us to enjoy an hour of rhymes, songs, and stories with your child!

Parent-Child Mother Goose is an evidence-based program that strengthens attachment and interaction between parents or carers and their young children by introducing them to the pleasure and power of using rhymes, songs and stories together.

Through the program, parents gain skills and confidence that help them create positive family patterns during their children’s crucial early years. At the same time, children benefit from enjoyable, healthy early experiences with language and communication.

There is emphasis on nurturing the positive interaction between parent and child using touching, stroking and cuddling.

Over time parents and carers learn a wide range of material which they are encouraged to use in their daily lives, such as rhymes, songs and lullabies to settle and soothe babies, rhymes to support daily routines of bathing, feeding, dressing and nappy change and others simply for the pleasure they bring.

The program is enjoyable and fun, and is available to participants free of charge.
