Throughout the month of March, the children of Mother Goose School will be learning about nature. Nature is all around us, and the spring season is the perfect time to get out and enjoy it. At school, teachers and students will enjoy taking nature walks, while at home, families are encouraged to spend time together outside.

As part of this month’s nature lessons, Ranger Benny of the Park Service will come visit Mother Goose School. The children will enjoy meeting him as he talks about wildlife. Ranger Benny comes to the school every year and always brings a collection of pelts and other finds related to science to share with the children.

This month, parents of Mother Goose School students are anticipating letters from public and private schools. The school strongly supports the process of finding the right kindergarten for students. To do so, Mother Goose School begins with workshops for families that provide specific information about kindergarten readiness and how to negotiate the lottery system put in place by the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD).

Mother Goose School works closely with Parents for Public Schools. They also have a unique understanding of San Francisco private schools, as well as a good relationship with admission directors and principals throughout San Francisco and the Bay Area.
