Supporting parents in their roles as their child’s first teacher, Early Childhood Alliance provides information, support and encouragement through the Parents as Teachers program (PAT). Families receive information and support in helping children develop the skills that lead to school readiness. Children involved in PAT have often shown significant advancement in language, problem solving, and social development.
PAT services include
- Interactive, one-on-one visits by a certified parent educator to share age-appropriate child development information.
- Periodic screening for early identification of developmental delays and a review of a child’s developmental progress.
- Periodic hearing screenings for children 0-3 years of age
- Assistance in identifying and connecting with needed resources.
This free program is designed for parents of children, prenatal through kindergarten.
