Parents as Teachers
Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a home visitation program available to families, in Arapahoe County with children birth to kindergarten, that meet specific eligibility requirements. The program is designed to enhance child development and school achievement through parent education. ACECC PAT is an affiliate of the PAT National Center.
As a PAT family you receive:
- Personal Visits – monthly meetings in your home with a parent educator who will share age-appropriate child development and parenting information, help you learn to observe your child and address your parenting concerns. You’ll get tips on discipline, toy and book selection, creating a safe and stimulating environment and how to build a happy and healthy parent-child relationship.
- Parent Group Connections – opportunities to make connections with other parents through fun and interactive activities.
- Screenings – administered periodically in your home to assess your child’s overall development as well as health, hearing and vision.
- Resource Network – links your family to other community services.
