Imagine your child 2 years, 5 years, 10 years from now!
What do you want for your child?
What do you want your child to learn?
The home-based option is a family focused service delivery that advocates and empowers parents to be their child’s first and most influential teacher. Because the early years are so important to the well-being & development of the child, weekly 90 minute home visits are done to support both the parent as the child’s “teacher’, and the child as the ‘learner’; and, all family members can participate!
The home-base teacher is a parent educator who assists families to fully serve as the primary educator of this child. The implementation of the Parents as Teachers (PAT) model is a relationship and strength based approach which focuses on:
1) Parent-Child Interaction;
2) Development-centered Parenting
3) Family Well-Being. Head Start believes that parents are the primary educator of their children and we will support you as a parent/caregiver to reach the goals you have for your child!
