"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". ´╗┐Nelson Mandela


We use Mother Goose Time Curriculum for our structured daily routines for kids who are 18 months and older. It helps us to educate our kids in a creative and engaging way. 
Mother Goose Time is a research-based preschool curriculum that fosters a joy of learning through sensory-based experiences. For over 29 years the nationally recognized preschool curriculum has supported a child's social-emotional, physical and cognitive development. Whether you teach preschool in a classroom, living room, or under a tree.
At the core of all learning is a trusting and loving relationship.
Mother Goose Time is uniquely designed to support us in having more time to observe, know and be with our children. It gives us concrete materials and ideas on how to inspire our children through art, music, logic games and hands-on investigations.

Curriculum Themes

Each month of the curriculum has a featured theme. Thematic investigations allow children to play, explore and learn about different concepts in their expanding lives. Themes allow children to organize new information and create a growing mental schema.

Each theme creatively integrates colors, shapes, numbers, and letters of the month. Plus, each month features a different music genre in our exclusive integrated music program.

Skills and Standards

Mother Goose Time uniquely weaves 33 research-based skills through monthly activities and discovery projects. As children participate in Mother Goose Time, they are naturally exposed to skills which support their on-going social-emotional, physical, language and cognitive development.

These skills, when combined with a nurturing environment, intentional teaching practices, and meaningful relationships support a child’s school readiness.

What is a typical day like with Mother Goose Time? Imagine dancing, singing, playing games, creating art, cutting, coloring, counting, telling stories and investigating a world of new ideas. This is Mother Goose Time.
