Parents as Teachers



Being a parent is hard work! Let us help support you through your parenting journey, and at no cost to you. 

Parents as Teachers helps you understand child development and connects you to the resources you need to make the best decisions for your family.

We partner with you to promote optimal early learning development and health of your child by supporting and engaging you as their parent.

In this free program, you will receive:

  • 2 home visits each month from a parent educator with an agenda that you set together
  • Monthly socialization activities with other parents
  • In-person visits with virtual visit options as needed
  • Age-appropriate screenings and assessments to keep your child on track and growing their best
  • Assistance with community resource connections

Ideally, families stay in the program for 2 years but children can stay until age 5. Check your eligibility in the next tab, or contact us to learn more!
