Parents as Teachers builds strong communities, thriving families and children who are healthy, safe and ready to learn by matching parents and caregivers with trained professionals who make regular personal home visits during a child’s earliest years in life, from prenatal through kindergarten.
Vision: All children will develop, learn and grow to realize their full potential.
Mission: Parents as Teachers promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers.
Approach: The Parents as Teachers (PAT) approach is to partner, facilitate, and reflect. We do this at every level of our organization, from a parent educator visiting a family in their home, all the way to the work of the national center.
