Parent as Teachers (PAT) is a FREE parent education and family support program serving families throughout pregnancy until your child enters kindergarten (usually age 5). We are here to help you! This is the most important gift you could ever give your child.

Do you worry about:

♦  the development of your newborn?

♦ your child developing like other children his/her age?

♦  finding affordable and quality child care?

♦  providing age appropriate fun activities at home?

♦ your 3-5 year old being prepared for kindergarten?

Call today to schedule a free developmental screening for children 6 months to 5 years of age!

As a PAT family member, you will receive:

*Personal Visits-during which your parent educator will share age-appropriate development fun home activities that help you, learn to observe your child, address your concerns and your child’s development.

*Parent Group Meetings-which are opportunities to share information about parent issues and child development. Parents learn and support each other, observe their child with other children and practice parenting skills.

*Resource Network: that links your family to other community services.

You may qualify for $200.00 in stipends



Our Vision

  •  All children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.

Our Mission

  • To provide the information, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.

Our Values

  • The early years of a child's life are critical for optimal development and provide the foundation for success in school and in life.
  • Parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.
  • Established and emerging research should be the foundation of parent education and family support curricula, training, materials and services.
  • All young children and their families deserve the same opportunities to succeed, regardless of any demographic, geographic or economic considerations.
  • An understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of diverse cultures is essential in serving families.
