The Butler School District will again be offering the Parents as Teacher program to families in the community. Parents as Teacher is a no cost parent program that serves families throughout pregnancy until your child turns five years old.
Parents as Teachers offers a monthly home visit by a certified parent educator. Parents as Teachers plan group events intentionally so families can interact with one another to form support networks and share common experiences. They also provide access to resource that works in the community to help link families to needed support.
Parents as Teachers provide child screening that include validated and approved screen tools to consider the child’s development at a single point in time. Screenings are completed within 90 day of enrollment and then every year after that.
The mission of Parents as Teachers is to provide the information, support, and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.
If you or someone you know would like more information about parents as teachers or would like to enroll in the program call Alex Franklin at 660-464-0404
