Parents As Teachers Program

Parents as Teachers is a free, evidence-based, voluntary program to support parents, answer your questions, increase your parenting skills, and help provide early detection of potential developmental delays in your child. Services include in-home or virtual visits and a variety of parenting classes to help you and your child make the most of the early years. (At the discretion of the primary caregiver(s), other family members or caregivers are welcome to join the visit.)

Home Visits by a Parent Educator

Our trained, certified Parent Educators can’t wait to support you at the beginning of your child’s life! Even better, they’ll come to you—working around your weekday schedule to find the most convenient time and place to meet. Regular visits happen at least monthly, last about an hour, and include play-based activities that are fun for your baby and informative for you as a parent. During these visits, Parent Educators also provide helpful information about age appropriate parenting skills and ideas for activities that strengthen developmental skills including language, thinking, and movement. Your Parent Educator can answer your questions, provide information, connect you to resources, and support you as a parent.
