ABOUT PARENTS AS TEACHERS
Did you know that 80% of brain development occurs before age three? These early years provide critical windows of opportunity that will help build the foundation for your child’s life. We believe that parents are their child’s first and most important teachers, and we want to make sure you have the resources and support you need to thrive. Let us help you maximize your efforts by providing information that will help you understand the meaning behind your child’s behaviors, how to build your parent child connection, and walk with you through parenting challenges along the way.
The Blue Valley Parents as Teachers program is a universal, free home visiting program for families residing in the Blue Valley School District with children prenatal through three years of age. Through Parents as Teachers, families receive monthly home visits, screenings, group connections and resource connections.
