Parents as Teachers (PAT)

Children Come into this World Ready for Love and Learning

Parents as Teachers has Parent Educators who are ready to inform, support, and encourage parents of 0-5 year old children in this important role. We also offer educational services during the prenatal months. Parents as Teachers is a FREE, in home, service that is tailored to meet the specific needs of each family as it relates to the growth and development of each child.

The Parents as Teacher program will highlight

  • Parent-Child Interaction – The love you have for your child and your warm, responsive interactions will support your child’s trust in this new and wonderful world.
  • Development-Centered Parenting – Your parent educator will help connect those behaviors and actions to what is happening in your child’s development.
  • Family Well Being – You are building a healthy, nurturing environment for your child. Your parent educator is there to broaden your knowledge as you make decisions for your child and family.
