Parents as Teachers provides parents with the knowledge and tools that support the health and development of young children at every stage. All services are home-based or virtual, voluntary, and at no cost to families.
The goals of Parents as Teachers are to:
- Increase school readiness and school success
- Provide parents with information about child development and parenting practices
- Help families detect health issues and developmental delays early
- Decrease parent stress
National studies show that children who participated in Parents as Teachers had better English language proficiency and academic outcomes.
