PARENTS AS TEACHERS
Our Parents as Teachers program is an internationally recognized, strengths based and evidence-based parenting education and support program. Parents as Teachers is a home visitation program designed to help new and experienced parents from pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten. Research indicates that the early years are crucial to laying the foundation for children’s life successes. We believe that parents are their children’s first and most influential teachers.
•Personalized Home Visits—Our Parent Educators provide age-appropriate child development information, support a safe and healthy environment, establish and assess measurable goals, and facilitate interaction between parents and children as a positive parenting teaching tool.
•Group Connections—We provide opportunities for families to connect with other parents, gain support, share information, and allow children to interact and socialize with their peers.
•Screenings—We screen for early identification of developmental delays, health, vision and hearing problems. These screenings also include Family Strengths Assessments and Goal Planning.
•Networking—Our Parent Educators help families identify and connect with needed resources to ensure that families receive comprehensive services.
