In-Home Parent Education
Parents as Teachers and the Nurturing program are nationally recognized programs where parent educators go into the home of new or expecting parents, and teach them what to expect as their child develops. This program is based upon the philosophy that a child's parents are his or her first and most important teachers. Research shows these programs increase school readiness and can be a factor in preventing child abuse. Expectant families and families with children ages birth to five years receive personalized home visits from a trained parent educator.
