Partnering with Parents

Parent educators work in partnership with parents to explore the latest parenting research and parent/child activities.

School Readiness

Together we build skills needed to prepare children to enter school socially and academically ready to learn.

Strong Families

We work to identify families' strengths and build simple strategies for growth.
Strong families = strong communities!

Yes, parenting is hard but it can be fun too - PATGC is here to help!

PAT believes that all parents, regardless of personal circumstances, can be empowered to interact with their children in a way that encourages healthy well-rounded development  . . . . all while enjoying their parenting journey!


Through the combined use of personal visits, group connections, screenings and community resources there is a focus on activities to encourage parent/child interaction, discussion around making connections between developmental stage and behavior, and building strong families:

Personal Visits

One-on-one time with a parent educator who shares child-development information and activities.

Group Connections

Opportunities for families to share experiences, discuss challenges and learn with other parents while supporting one another.

Screenings

Regular screenings to make sure your child is healthy, safe and developing on track.

Community Resources

Parent educators match parents' concerns and needs to available community resources.
