Mother Goose Program

The Parent-Child Mother Goose Program® is 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.

Come join us in song every Friday at 9:30am at the Marcel-Giroux Community Center, Room 218. Educators: Emilie Zervos and Sylvia Mignacca
