What can Parents as Teachers™ do for my child and me?

We believe that

  • Supporting children early in life is the most effective and economical way of improving their quality of life.
  • All children deserve to begin school with knowledge and skills that will enable them to be academically successful.
  • All parents want to be good parents.
  • All families have personal and cultural strengths, and they are empowered when those strengths are recognized, respected and encouraged.
