Pool Rhyme Time (2005)

Program Manual

The Pool Rhyme Time Program was developed by Literacy for Life Foundation in the High River/Okotoks region of Alberta.

The goals of the Program are to:
1. Teach parents basic knowledge on how rhythm and rhyme and the development of motor skills in the early years impacts on a child’s future literacy development and aquatic enjoyment.
2. Provide activities and strategies that combine rhymes, rhythm and stories with physical development activities.
3. Create an environment that focuses on fun and play and teaches parents the importance of play based skill development.
4. Demonstrate and teach parents strategies that can be used in daily life that will assist them in calming, distracting and entertaining their children.

The Program is designed for children 6 months of age to walking, but can be adapted for older children as well.
