San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2014
“Animals” is the theme of the month for April at Mother Goose School in San Francisco. Teachers will provide opportunities for children to learn about the different types of animals. Animal month is a fun theme for children and teachers. There are so many things to learn within this category.
The Zoo Mobile will visit Mother Goose School this month and share with the children some of their favorite child-friendly reptiles and mammals. The children will be allowed to touch, feel and learn directly about these reptiles and mammals that come from habitats around the world.
Mother Goose School also encourages families to visit the Smith’s Mt. St. Helena Trout Farm, the Audubon Canyon Ranch, Muir Woods, the San Francisco and Oakland Zoo, the Academy of Sciences, Berkeley’s Tilden Park and the various tide pools along the seashore. Families should also take nature walks and have discussions about animals and how they have adapted to a city environment.
Easter is quickly approaching, and the children are thrilled to dye eggs and make baskets for this holiday.
Mother Goose School will be having its yearly vision screening for the children at 9 a.m. Wednesday, April 23 and Thursday, April 24. This is an important service provided by Prevent Blindness of California and Mother Goose School.
“We are grateful to have them share their services”, explained Dana, owner of Mother Goose School. “They do a great job screening our children and making sure they have healthy vision!”
Everyone is looking forward to May’s Multicultural theme, where students will be performing musical numbers for their parents. The children are practicing music and movement from Mexico, North America, France, Germany, Greece, Ghana, Japan, Hawaii, Africa and many more. Families are invited to share traditional ethnic foods and stories throughout the month with their child’s class.
