  • Parents as Teachers

    Parents as Teachers is an evidence-based home visiting model that provides comprehensive home-visits, parent education. The model provides services to families with children from Prenatal through Kindergarten entry.

    Affiliates follow the essential requirements of the model, which provide minimum expectations for program design, infrastructure, and service delivery. Parents as Teachers provides support for affiliates to meet those requirements as well as further quality standards that represent best practices in the field.

  • Parent Child +

    ParentChild+ uses education to break the cycle of poverty for low-income families. We engage early in life and help toddlers, their parents, and their family child care providers access a path to possibility.
