Parents as Teachers

The first 3 years of a child's life are the MOST IMPORTANT for laying a strong and positive foundation in all areas of their lives – education, health, behavior and relationships. Because those first few years are so important, parents are their child's FIRST and MOST INFLUENTIAL teachers!

The Parents as Teachers (PAT) program partners with parents to learn how to take care of their child and make sure they are ready for school and life. It's free, and provides information, support and encouragement specifically for you and your family's needs.
