USD 251 Parents as Teachers Program is an early learning program for parents of young children prenatal to age six.

Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a free, research-based program designed to provide practical, timely information to all families with young children including single parents, first-time parents, and expectant parents. Being a parent is a lot more fun and much less stressful if you know how your child grows and develops, and you know how to encourage your child so he/she will get a great start in life.

Parents as Teachers helps parents understand child development and connect them to the resources they need to make the best choices for their families.   PAT offers personal visits (COVID safety precautions will be exercised) customized for the needs of your family. Together on each visit we'll look at your child's development and talk about the parenting challenges you face right now, think about family dynamics impacting your child's development, and build strong protective factors to keep you, your child and your family healthy, strong and resilient.
