HOW DO YOU BENEFIT FROM PARENTS AS TEACHERS PROGRAM?
HOW DO CHILDREN BENEFIT?
As a parent, you are your child's first
and most influential teacher. We can help you lay a strong foundation
for your child's future success in school.
A series of independent evaluations of Parents as
Teachers over the past 20 years has shown that children participating
in the program were significantly more advanced than their peers in language
development, social development, problem solving and other intellectual
skills. These benefits continued to be seen as they entered school and
throughout their school experience.
