Our approach helps get Early Head Start children ready to learn
Parents as Teachers offers an approach to home visiting that helps achieve Head Start outcomes…an approach that is relationship-based and parenting-focused. Together, our evidence-informed Foundational Curriculum and training prepare staff to promote school readiness and parent engagement, hallmarks of Early Head Start.
Some of our best partners are Early Head Start programs…programs that incorporate the Parents as Teachers approach into existing programming.
In our Foundational Training, Early Head Start home visitors learn to work with families in their homes to partner, facilitate and reflect.
- Training builds relationship-based competencies for working with families in their homes.
- Focus is placed on strengthening protective factors to improve parenting and maximize child outcomes.
- Training is facilitated by expert trainers who emphasize reflective practice and hands-on learning.
The Foundational Curriculum features family-friendly activities and resources that engage families in children’s learning and development. The key areas of emphasis are parent-child interaction, development-centered parenting, and family well-being.
