It's October - time to get ready for HALLOWEEN! Our theme for the fourth week of October is Happy Halloween!
Based on the "Mother Goose on the Loose" program, Toddler Time is a fun-filled thirty-minute interactive program that uses rhymes, songs, puppets, musical instruments, and more to stimulate the learning process of babies and toddlers. It is a proven method for planning and presenting programs that focus on the whole child.

The "Mother Goose on the Loose" program helps children develop skills for success in a classroom. It helps children acquire a rich vocabulary and strengthens foundational reading skills. MGOL gives children opportunities to practice turn-taking, direction following, paying attention and showing appreciation to others. The age-appropriate listening, moving, and singing that takes place in MGOL exercises fine and gross motor skills, fosters speech development, keeps children’s interest for an extended period of time, gives children opportunities to make scientific observations regarding cause and effect, and provides a joyful introduction to the world of books and reading.
