Family Center

Parents as Teachers


Certified family educators provide in-home visits to families offering health, vision, and developmental screenings of children, one-on-one support for parents and families, and a support network linking them to community resources. This evidence-based program improves parent’s /caregiver’s knowledge of early childhood development and improves parenting practices, provides early detection of developmental delays and health issues, prevents child abuse and neglect, and increases children’s school readiness and success. PAT is available to any family with a child kindergarten age or younger – even expectant parents.
