Mother Goose

Mother Goose Programs are happening in the community!
The Parent Child Mother Goose Program uses songs, rhymes and storytelling with parents and their children to promote oral language, social competence and emotional regulation in young children. Parents play with their children by engaging in songs and games with trained facilitators. Mother Goose strengthens the bond between parent and child and provides parents with the tools that make daily life with a young child more fulfilling while enhancing their child's development.

PALS

PALS is a program for parents/guardians of Kindergarten children. It is designed to improve the children’s performance in reading, writing and math at school and to build the connection between home and school.
Parents are invited to attend 3 kindergarten PALS sessions held throughout the school year.
At these sessions, a trained facilitator will talk to parents about early learning.
The focus of the 3 PALS sessions will be:
•Storybook Reading
•Linking Literacy and Play
•Early Math
After each session, families will go home with a "goodie bag", which will support the topic they have been working on.

Contact Tracy Williamson, Program Coordinator at 250.542.3121 Ext. 106 This program is in partnership with School District 22
