Mother Goose on the Loose® Workshops

Mother Goose on the Loose® Workshops

Explore scientific findings regarding child development, experience a live Mother Goose on the Loose session, and learn how to easily plan and present your own program.

Mother Goose on the Loose is an award winning early literacy program that is used in libraries around the county (and abroad) for parents with babies from birth to age two, although it has been successfully adapted for children up to age 5 as well. Easy to plan and easy to present, Mother Goose on the Loose seamlessly combines music, movement, books, rhymes, puppets, and fingerplays in fun ways that help children develop language and self-regulation skills.

The full day workshop (9:30-3:30) combines new brain development research, an actual Mother Goose on the Loose program with a local group of children and a hands-on portion in the afternoon where participants make their own felt pieces.
