Parents As Teachers Information

Parents As Teachers PAT

 Pattonsburg R-II School District

The Early Childhood Education Act programs help to increase parents’ confidence and improve their parenting skills. They can then better support their children’s education and development before and after school entry. Periodic screenings increase parents’ understanding of their children’s developmental progress, as well as alert them to any possible delays. Early intervention for identified problems helps improve chances that children will enter school with “healthy minds and bodies.”

Personal Visit:  During a personal visit a parent educator shares information on child development, brings an age-appropriate activity for you and your child to do together, and with you observes your child's play and development. Usually visits are conducted at your home, making it convenient and safe for small children. However visits may be at the Parents as Teachers room or another place of your choosing. Visits last about an hour.
