Parents as Teachers

Parents As Teachers (PAT) is a home/community/school partnership designed to support parents in their parenting role. This free, voluntary program provides personal visits from certified parent educators who are trained in early childhood development. They assist parents in recognizing and discovering the seven developmental stages in their child’s life and in discovering any conditions that might hinder their child’s development. Last year nearly 10,000 family visits were made by 34 parent educators in Lee’s Summit. Additionally, PAT provides other services including developmental screenings, parent group meetings, teen parent groups, and special programs for children with disabilities, English as a Second Language families, and single-parent households.
