A Parent is a Child’s First Teacher

Your children have so much potential. As a parent, you have a unique opportunity to be their first teacher. That’s because most brain development occurs in the first few years of life, and you can make a difference. Parents As Teachers will show you how. Our Home Visitors will provide you with resources appropriate for your child’s stage of development. Through Parents As Teachers, you’ll develop a stronger relationship with your child and help prepare them for academic success.

Parents as Teachers is a free program for all parents with children younger than 5 years old. Learn how to effectively and meaningfully interact with your child to help them develop intellectually and emotionally and to help you form a deeper relationship and bond with your child.

Benefits of Parents As Teachers:

  • This program is evidence-based and proven to work.
  • Children who feel safe, healthy, and cared for can thrive.
  • We’ll catch possible developmental challenges early on.
  • We’ll connect you with a variety of community resources.
  • Fun activities will deepen your relationship with your child.
