Parents As Teachers (PAT)
During the years between birth and kindergarten there are important times when specific kinds of learning...language, sight, basic motor skills...must take place for your child to develop to the fullest.
PAT, a parent education and family support organization, can help you capture those windows of opportunity so your child starts school ready to succeed!
What is it all about?
- Personal Visits - Family Consultants trained in child development share information and offer tips for parents to maximize their child's learning experiences.
- Play Groups - opportunities for families to share their experience, information, and support; a great time for families to participate in parent-child activities and for children to socialize.
- Screenings - assess overall development, health, hearing, and vision; to detect potential delays early in the child's life.
- Resource Network - links families to other families and community services.
A parent is a child's first and most important teacher. This FREE program is designed to provide parents with information and to help build their child's intellectual, language, social and physical development from birth to age three. Each stage in a child's development is important and comes with opportunities for learning. PAT helps guide parents through those stages and gives them tools for success.For Enrollment Information contact Program Coordinator: Casy Ziegler
