Mother Goose School in San Francisco, Cali., will be hosting two upcoming Kindergarten Workshops.

Mother Goose School, a trusted child care development preschool program in San Francisco, recently announced two upcoming Kindergarten workshops in September and October. The workshops hosted by Ms. Susan are designed to give parents key information on kindergarten related topics, including kindergarten readiness, visiting elementary schools and the kindergarten application process.

On Monday, September 24th, 2012, the workshop focus will be on the Kindergarten Admissions Process. On Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012, the workshop will be presented by Parents for Public Schools. Mother Goose School encourages families enrolled at the school to sign up for workshops.

Mother Goose School was established in 1951 by Yvonne Hemberger and is currently run by her son, Dana Hemberger. The family owned business is licensed to serve 94 students, ages two to six years of age, and has an established, comprehensive curriculum addressing the social, emotional, cognitive and physical development of young children. Children matriculate into kindergarten well prepared for the rigors of any private, public or parochial school environment.

"New students are entering the program monthly," said Mr. Charles of Mother Goose School. "We strive for a successful transition into Mother Goose by encouraging parents to have positive conversations with their child about school. Preadmission visits are scheduled before the child enters the program."

Continual staff training and education is a key priority at Mother Goose School. On September 10th, the school will also be conducting their annual Staff Development Day. Science in the pre-school classroom will be on the agenda and staff will learn how to encourage children to observe, make predictions and understand the laws of Nature. Teachers will lead experiments with the acid properties of vinegar, make gravity clowns, and study static electricity.

Self regulation is an important topic in Child Development and another focus on Staff Development Day. Understanding what motivates children, how they learn to focus, and regulate their busy bodies are research topics in the profession of early childhood development and education. How this translates into the classroom and practical everyday applications will be discussed among the teachers on Staff Development Day.
