Mother Goose Club is a collection of educational content for preschoolers featuring six colorful characters from the Mother Goose world. Beloved by preschoolers and their caregivers and teachers worldwide, Mother Goose Club is a leading educational YouTube channel with billions of views and is also distributed on Netflix, Amazon and on local PBS stations nationwide. Mother Goose Club is the proud winner of four Midsouth EMMY® awards and 15 other industry awards.
Mother Goose Club’s mission is to bring preschool to the world and promote early literacy. Most content is anchored by nursery rhymes, terrific tools for developing reading readiness in young children. These simple rhymes teach phonemic awareness, vocabulary and story structure. Most importantly, they’re fun, so they foster an enduring enthusiasm for reading and positive adult-child relationships. Spending a few minutes each day reading or singing nursery rhymes with a child is a simple, cost-effective and enjoyable way to promote early literacy.
Through song, rhyme, play and dance, Mother Goose Club’s characters – Baa Baa Sheep, Eep the Mouse, Little Bo Peep, Jack B. Nimble, Mary Quite Contrary and Mother Goose Club’s Teddy Bear – inspire viewers to interact with rhymes.
