Mother Goose

Mother Goose Co-operative Preschool is a non-profit organization that has been active in the community of southwest Hamilton for over 40 years.

More than a school, our co-op is a community of parents joining together to support and encourage our children as they grow and develop. Mother Goose is a great transitional step for children to help them prepare for full time schooling.


Fundraising at Mother Goose serves to support the school's program development and it is also key to building community in our southwest neighbourhood. Our largest fundraiser is the much loved annual Mother Goose  Scavenger Hunt and attracts close to 1000 people (see below for more details). We hold a family-friendly Dance Party during the school year in addition to a variety of smaller fundraising initiatives throughout the year.  

We are grateful to the individuals and businesses that donate items to these events not to mention the Mother Goose families who pull together to make these fundraisers tremendously successful. 


Our current fundraiser is with Mabel's Labels - makers of waterproof, laundry & dishwasher safe personalized labels. For every order, Mother Goose receives a percentage of the proceeds. All proceeds go directly to classroom improvement. If you would like to support our school, please go to our fundraising page on the Mabel's Labels website.

Long weekend SCAVENGER Hunt

The Scavenger Hunt is held every year on the Saturday of the Easter weekend from 10 am - 12 pm. Anyone and everyone from the neighbourhood, their family & friends are invited to attend. The  Scavenger Hunt is traditionally held at Highland Gardens Park (also known as the "Res") and is a perennial family favourite.
