Parents as Teachers is an evidence-based home visiting model that promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. The program model can be offered prenatally through kindergarten.

The Parents as Teachers model offers a cohesive package of services for families with young children and is framed around four dynamic components: Personal Visits, Group Connections, Child Screenings, and Resource Network. Our home visiting professionals meet families where they are comfortable, typically in their home. During visits, parent educators assess family needs and partner with parents to set family goals. Home visitors provide necessary information and resources to ensure that parents are confident in the emotional, behavioral and physical development of their children. Each personal visit includes a focus on Parent-Child Interaction, Development-Centered Parenting and Family Well-Being.

Parent educators use partnering, facilitating and reflecting in their work with families to: promote parental resilience; knowledge of parenting and child development; and social and emotional competence of children to strengthen protective factors.

We Partner With Familes To:

  • Increase parent knowledge of early childhood development and improve positive parenting practices
  • Provide early detection of developmental delays and connection to services
  • Prevent child abuse and neglect
  • Increase children’s school readiness and success
  • Improve parent, child, and family health and well being
  • Improve family economic well-being
  • Strengthen community capacity and connectedness
  • Additionally, we partner with States, Territories and Tribal Entities to develop and implement home visiting programs that improve the health and well-being of families with young children
