Mother Goose Time Curriculum     

     Hello, friends!!  :)  We are gearing up for our first day of school on Tuesday, September 3rd, the day after Labor Day.  My assistant and I have been working hard to provide the best preschool experiences possible.  A large part of that is the Mother Goose Time Curriculum that I purchase each month.  We started with this curriculum last year and the kids absolutely love it!!  And as an Early Childhood professional, I love it as well because it helps me spend less time on prepping and more time on curious discovery with my students.     

     Mother Goose Time is a research-based early learning curriculum.  It uniquely weaves 33 research-based skills (from 8 domains) into playful games and projects.  As children participate, they naturally grow in all areas of development, including social-emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development.  The 8 domain areas are: 
  1. Social and Emotional Development
  2. Physical Development
  3. Language and Literacy Development
  4. Mathematics and Reasoning Development
  5. Social Studies Development
  6. Science Development
  7. Creative Development
  8. Second Language Acquisition Development

     Brain and early childhood research provides the groundwork for designing developmentally appropriate and effective experiences for young children. Research in neurobiology, behavioral science and social sciences have helped the Mother Goose Time staff better understand that relationships, cultures and environments dynamically influence a child’s development. As a result, each child grows and learns uniquely. Mother Goose Time integrates the same skills and coding system to cite the learning objectives for a given project or activity. This allows me to consistently assess skill development across multiple curricular tools.

     Needless to say, I love Mother Goose Time!!  If you would like to check out their website, click here:
