PARENTS AS TEACHERS PROGRAM

 

Parents as Teachers is an international, evidence-based, home visiting program that supports parents as their child's earliest and best teacher and helps children grow, learn, and reach their full potential.

 

 

WHO SHOULD BE REFERRED?

 

Families with a child under age three in Cuyahoga County. 

 
 

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT?

 

Once your child has been referred, you will be assigned a Parent Educator. The Parent Educator is a trained professional in child development who will schedule visits that are at a convenient time and place for you and your family. At those visits, the Parent Educator will: 

  • Bring age-appropriate activities and materials for you and your child 

  • Bring information in response to your questions or needs 

  • Provide guidance for challenges such as crying, hitting, sleeping routines, and potty training

  • Conduct developmental screenings and assessments 

  • Share what you can expect your child to be doing at each stage of development 

  • Encourage and support you as a parent and as your child's most important teacher 

  • Connect you to needed resources and services in the community

Parents as Teachers also offers opportunities to connect with other families. You can participate in special groups such as Families in the Kitchen, All About Reading, Let’s Paint, and Preschool Prep, as well as, a group through social media called Parents Connect. 

 

WHAT ARE THE GOALS?

  • Increase children's school readiness and school success

  • Increase parent knowledge of early childhood development and improve parenting practices

  • Provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues

  • Decrease parent stress
