About Us

YOUR BABY/CHILD WAS BORN TO LEARN!

In the first few years, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in their life. You help shape your child's future through the kinds of experiences you provide. Your baby was born to learn, and as a parent, YOU are your child's first and most important teacher, especially during the critical early years of life.

PARENTS AS TEACHERS IS HERE TO HELP YOU!

In the Parents As Teachers (PAT) parent education and family support program, PAT-certified parent educators are trained to translate valuable scientific research on early brain development in to specific when, what, how and why information for families. By learning what to expect during each stage of development, parents can easily capture the teachable moments in everyday life to enhance their child's language development, intellectual growth, social development and motor skills.

Our approach is proven and research–based.

PAT Children are :

  • Healthier
  • Score higher on Kindergarten readiness tests
  • Better problem solvers
  • More advanced in language, motor and social development

PAT Parents are:

  • More involved in their child’s education
  • More connected through play and reading times
  • More confident in their role of parenting
