Parents as Teachers
The Parents as Teachers Program (PAT) is a nationally acclaimed, research-based parent education and family support program. This program serves parents that have children ages 0 to 5, to provide them with parenting support and information on their developing child.
The program provides practical, hands-on information and techniques that help you be the best parent you can be through:
- Home visits: During these visits parent educators focus on three areas: parent-child interaction, development centered parenting and family well-being. Parents will do an activity their child and the parent educator shares age-appropriate child development and parenting information.
- Group Connections: Meetings are held monthly and are a fun way to connect with other parents with children the same age. Parents enjoy activities for the whole family while you learn and share how-to information about parenting issues and child development.
- Developmental screenings are conducted annually to assess the child’s overall development as well as health, hearing and vision.
- Resource network that links your family to other community services.
