Parents as Teachers

This program helps to give every family a STRONG start by increasing parent/guardian knowledge of early childhood development, improve early detection of developmental and health issues, and increase children’s school readiness and success through personalized visits from a nationally trained and certified Parent Educator. Parent Educators provide fun activities to stimulate intellectual, social, emotional, language, and motor development and provide connections to resources within the community. In the first few years of life, children learn more, and at a faster place, than at any other time in life. Parents as Teachers can help!

Parents as Teachers serve families and their children from pregnancy to the start of kindergarten. Parents as Teachers provides services to biological parents, grandparents, kinship, foster/adoptive families, and to legal guardians. 

Parents as Teachers is a FREE program for anyone who lives in the counties we serve (Wood, Wirt, Ritchie, Roane, Calhoun, and Gilmer) and is either pregnant or has a child who is under the age of 4.
