Parents as Teachers

Participants in the Parents as Teachers program receive personal visits from a certified educator. The program provides you with timely information on child development and brain research; involves you in parent-child activities that encourage language development, intellectual growth, social development, and motor skills; and strengthens your relationship with your child. This FREE program is open to all parents of children 0-5 years old.

Studies show that children who participate in the program score higher on kindergarten readiness tests and on standardized measures of achievement in early grades.
