Parents as Teachers

Welcome to our website!

P.A.T. stands for “Parents as Teachers.” Our program believes that each parent is their child’s first teacher. We hope to encourage this mindset and to support parents in their role as teacher.

The PAT Program is a FREE program serving families throughout pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten, usually age 5. The program is designed to enhance child development and school achievement through parent education and support. We believe all families can benefit from support and provide a model to provide support to many levels of support that might be needed by a family.
