Our Program

Parents As Teachers (PAT) is a FREE early childhood family education program to assist and support families in preparing their children for success in school and beyond.

As a parent, you are your child’s first and most important teacher!

Your child learns more during the early years than at any other time in life.  How your child grows and learns during these years – beginning at birth – will impact later development and success in school.

When enrolled in Mid-Buchanan Parents As Teachers, families with children birth to kindergarten will receive FREE:

  • Home visits with a certified parent educator

  • Yearly developmental and health screenings

  • Parent-Child Activities
