Parenting Support

 Parents are supported by Parent as Teachers!

Did you know that 90% of a child's brain develops before age 5? So make the first 5 years count!

 

Certified parent educators are trained to translate scientific information on early brain development into specific when, what, how, and why advice for families that are enrolled in the program.  It helps to talk through the different stages and areas as there is typically no clear answer.

By understanding what to expect during each stage of development, parents can easily capture the teachable moments in everyday life to enhance their child's language development, intellectual growth, social development, and motor skills.

 

**BUT wait.  You're not enrolled.  It's ok.  There's still support for you!!  Check out these resources that are offered FREE for you.**
