    • Parents as Teachers

      Pattonville Parents as Teachers (PAT) Program

      Are you the parent of a child under 5? If so, we have the perfect program for you and your child...the Pattonville Parents as Teachers program. This program is built on the premise that parents are a child's first and best teacher.  Did you know that children learn most from the people they love?

      Being a parent is a lot more fun and much less stressful if...

      • You know how your child grows and develops.
      • You know how to encourage your child so he will get off to a great start in life.
      • You share experiences and receive support from other families who have a child the same age as yours.

      The Parents as Teachers program includes...

      • A special time with you and your child - home visits with a parent educator
      • A time for sharing and learning with other parents - parenting classes and group meetings
      • Fun activities for both parent and child
      • Age-appropriate screenings for your child
      • Assistance with difficult issues (i.e. sleeping, toilet training, discipline)
      • Developmental information and education
      • Resources linking parents with special services, if needed

      Who is eligible?

      This program is FREE and available to all families in the Pattonville School District with young children. This includes families who:

      • Are expecting a new baby
      • Have children under school age

      Pattonville's team of parent educators provide support, resources, and developmental information to help with your most important, but sometimes toughest job; that of being a parent.  Each family enrolled in PAT is provided with their own personal parent educator.
