Parents as Teachers is a parent education and support program for families with children from birth to Kindergarten entry, as well as expectant parents. It is designed to help you as a parent be able to help your child learn, grow and develop to realize his/her full potential.
Any family in the JCPS district can take advantage of these services for FREE:
• Annual health/hearing/vision and developmental screenings for children age 3 months to 5 years
• Group connection events
• Resource information

Qualifying families can also take part in personalized home visits with a certified parent educator.
