The Parents as Teachers Program (PAT) provides information, support, and encouragement to parents in need. PAT teaches parents the skills needed to their children develop optimally during the critical, formative years of life. PAT is a champion for early intervention and parental involvement and serves as a unified voice for early childhood education and healthy child development. The program supports a parent’s role in promoting school readiness and healthy development of children.
PAT serves families with children from birth to age five by:
• increasing the parents’ knowledge of early childhood development
• improving parenting practices
• preventing child abuse
• preparing children for school success
In 2014, one-hundred and eight-eight children and one-hundred and sixty-four adults were served.
