Parents As Teachers is a free, voluntary program designed to provide practical, timely information to all families including single parents, first-time parents and expectant parents.
Being a parent is a lot more fun and much less stressful if:
- You know how your child grows and develops.
- You know how to encourage your child so he will get a great start in life.
- You share experiences and receive support from other families who have a child the same age as yours.
The goal of the Parents As Teachers program is to help parents be better teachers for their children during those most important years before kindergarten and to help parents understand more about how children grow and develop.
The way a child grows and learns during the early years of life, beginning at birth, can have an enormous impact on his or her later development and success in school. Parents in the program can expect to increase their awareness of their child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development.
