What is Parents as Teachers?

Parents as Teachers is in the business of helping early childhood professionals support families. We are the trusted resource for those who connect families with information, support and encouragement to help their children develop optimally during the early years of life.

Parents as Teachers is about parent/child interaction.

Ours is what’s known as a home visiting model. Home visiting services are part of a continuum of supports for families of young children that strong communities provide to strengthen famlies.

The purpose of home visits is to help parents improve their parenting skills, particularly in the child’s primary learning environment. Through Parents as Teachers, parent educators work to build strong families by fostering positive parent-child relationships.

Whether yours is an organization new to home visiting or one already providing home visits but looking to strengthen outcomes, we can help. It’s easy to find out more.
