Mother Goose Time
(
www.mothergoosetime.com)
Through Mother Goose, we practice daily activities
such as numbers, letters, colors,and shapes to
further our learning and fun.   Mother Goose is an
Award Winning Early Learning Curriculum and now
has a Christian Supplement that ties the monthly
themes to Bible stories to create well rounded
lessons for the children.
Activities
We try to play outdoors as much as possible to enjoy that
California sun.  The program we follow includes many
activities and we supplement those with many more...  The
backyard can accommodate a lot of running and has a
circular path to use bikes, etc.

Field Trips
Occasionally, we will go for what the children feel are "field trips"
to a park or playground.  I will always give you advanced notice of
these and will always carry my phone in case you need to reach us.  
Daily, during school, we are transporting children to and from
school.  Numerous car games and silly songs accompany us
wherever we go.  We are in a constant state of discovery.  
Should we ever wish to go to a museum or zoo, it will be when
none of the children are in school and I will discuss the possibility
with all the parents before making a decision.
Our Daily Schedule is not set in stone.  Depending on the track we are
on, we may not be making a school run that day, or we may have
children in the afternoon kindergarten needing picked up.  Sometimes
the children want more free time to run and less project time.  But,
since children need some sort of structure, for the majority of the time,
this is our schedule:
Monthly Newsletter and Pictures
To keep you aware of what your child is learning, you will receive a
monthly newsletter of our activities.  I also take lots of pictures
here, and although I would rather not post your child(ren)'s picture
on the open web, we do have a Facebook page only available to
clients.  The kids are fascinated by the process.
