Building Bonds Through Singing: A FESA Learner Creating Connections with Her Child

Woman with two babies interacting

The programming the Further Education Society of Alberta (FESA) provides to the various communities in Calgary have a long-lasting impact on those that attend. FESA Facilitator Victoria passed along this story about how a mom and her child from the Parent Child Mother Goose (PCMG) program Victoria facilitates has incorporated so to help with early development. Things like word recognition, hand development, and strengthening the bond between parent and child are some of the skills developed by attending our program.

Here's what Victoria said: I recently had a wonderful conversation with a parent who shared a heartwarming story with me. She told me how she started singing to her baby after we discussed the benefits of music for young children. Inspired by our chat, she began singing “5 Little Ducks” and “Walking through the Jungle” with her little one. The baby loved it so much that it became a daily routine.

The mom then decided to involve her toddler in their singing sessions. It turned into a special family activity where they all sing together every day. The songs I taught them have now become a cherished part of their daily routine, bringing joy and bonding them as a family. It's amazing to see how something as simple as singing can create such positive connections and memories!
