Celebrating Families in Preschool

September’s Mother Goose Time theme is Me & My Family.  It’s a perfect place to start learning. Today’s families are diverse. Families may consist of: multi-ethnic, single parents, grandparents, adoptive parents, same sex, or blended families. All families are different but all families are a place to belong, who lives in the house, who love each other and are committed to each other. Celebrating families in preschool important because families have a unique role  in their children’s learning and development.

Celebrating Families in Preschool

Using the family stamps included in September’s kit, (and currently exclusive to The Mother Goose Time Me & My Family kit) we talked about who lives in our homes. These people are our family. Some of our family members do not live in our house. We may have pets who are included in our family.

Families are important.  I enjoyed talking to each one about their family, most whom I’ve gotten to know well.
