Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a parent education and family support program serving families throughout pregnancy up until their child enters kindergarten, usually age 5. PAT is provided at no charge.
Parents are supported by PAT-certified parent educators trained to translate scientific information on early brain development into specific when, what, how and why advice for families. By understanding 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.
