Parents As Teachers Collaboration
Parents As Teachers (PAT) is an effective curriculum for parents of preschool children. Through this collaborative program with the Bedford Central School District, registered families receive weekly or biweekly one-on-one parent education, developmental information and support through personal home visits to promote the healthy development of children from pregnancy to kindergarten. Parent Educators utilize the nationally recognized and evidenced based home visiting Parents as TeachersTM model to deliver quality home-based early childhood education, developmentally age appropriate parent resources and effective child-parent interaction techniques. Families receive developmental screenings and are referred to early intervention services, internal programs and/or community resources, as needed. To qualify, families must live in the Bedford Central School District. For more information, please contact Stephanie Rosado, Family Center Director, at email@example.com or 914-661-6906.
