An early-learning program for parents with children birth to age 3
The Parents As Teachers Program is a FREE year-round program which offers parents:
Personal Visits: Certified parent educators, trained in child development and home visiting, go to each family's home on a regular basis. Visit times are flexible so that all families can participate.
Parent & Child Activity Centers: Each center contains books, learning activities and toys for children as well as literature on parenting and child development. Playgroups are held for parents and children on a weekly basis.
Developmental Screenings: The developmental screenings serve two purposes – to reassure parents when the child is developing on target, and to identify problems early to assist parents with appropriate interventions.
Group Meetings: Group meetings for parents allow parents to share ideas, express concerns and obtain additional parenting information.
Newsletter: Parents receive a monthly newsletter informing them of upcoming PAT events and community events.
The time is now! Any family within the Kansas City, Kansas, Public School District boundaries is eligible to participate if their child is between the age of birth and 36 months. Enroll now!!
