Our vision is that all children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.
Parents as Teachers promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers.
The Parents as Teachers approach is to partner, facilitate and reflect. We do this at every level of our organization, from a parent educator visiting a family in their home, all the way to the work of the national center.
The early years of a child's life are critical for optimal development and provide the foundation for success in school and in life
Parents are their children's first and most influential teachers
Established and emerging research should be the foundation of parent education and family support curricula, training, materials and services
All young children and their families deserve the same opportunities to succeed, regardless of any demographic, geographic or economic considerations
An understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of diverse cultures is essential in serving families
