    Services provided:

    1. Personalized home visits with certified Parent Educator.
    2. Group Connections with other parents
    3. Developmental, vision and hearing screening.
    4. Resource network.
    5. Drop in and Play Center located at the Southwest Early Childhood Center (a place for parents and children enrolled in the program to play with their children).
    Please note that while we do currently have a waiting list for the personal visit portion of our program, enrolling in PAT will give you access to the other services listed above.  When your family comes to the top of the waiting list and a parent educator has a space available, she will contact you to set up your first visit together.  Unfortunately, we are unable to predict how long your family may be waiting for a parent educator to be assigned to you, but hope you take advantage of our group connections, annual screening, and drop in and play center, which includes a resource corner.  If you have further questions about the program, or a child development question, please contact Katie Epema, the Parents as Teachers Coordinator via email or call (573)659-2350.
