What We Do—

For Families

Parents As Teachers (PAT)

As their child’s first and best teacher, parents play a crucial role in supporting school readiness.  Parents as Teachers (PAT) is an evidence-based home visiting model that promotes optimal early development, learning, and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers prenatally through kindergarten.

Parent Educators help families:

  • Enhance their parenting skills
  • Support healthy pregnancies and babies
  • Build a strong network of support for parents and families
  • Make homes a safe place for children to live and play
  • Get referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training, and other support services available in their community
  • Find ways to continue their education and develop job skills
  • Set goals for their future and find ways to reach them

Program Components:

  • Personal, in-home parent/child visits that focus on Parent-Child Interaction, Development-Centered Parenting, and Family Well Being.
  • Monthly Group Connection meetings where parents get to know each other
  • Child Screenings
  • Resource & Referral Network
