Parents as Teachers

The Parents as Teachers [PAT] program is a nationally accredited, evidence-based program that offers parent education to expectant mothers and to parents of children prenatal to 5 years of age. The home visiting model is designed to ensure that young children are healthy, safe and ready to learn. The Parents-As-Teachers Program has four dynamic components:

Personal Visits

Group Connections

Child Screenings

Resource Network

Family Development Program

Through this program, family development workers work one-on-one with families to assist them in setting and achieving transformative goals in their lives to move toward self-reliance and healthy interdependence. The framework, a research-based approach known as the family development approach, focuses on helping families build from their strengths, take charge of their lives, and access resources that are available in their communities. We acknowledge that parents are the experts on their own families and want to do right by their child and utilize this model with families participating in programs across the center.
