Parents as Teachers program is designed to offer developmental
information and support to all parents of infants and young
children. The program works with children from prenatal to
kindergarten. The goal of the program is to help parents give
their child the best possible start in life. Parents
AsTeachers uses four ways to partner with parents to help each
child reach his potential for learning.
Personal Visit: During a personal visit a parent educator shares information on child development, brings an age-appropriate activity for you and your child to do together, and with you observes your child's play and development. Usually visits are conducted at your home, making it convenient and safe for small children. However visits may be at the Parents as Teachers room or another place of your choosing. Visits last about an hour.
