Why Parents As Teachers

As a parent, you are your child's first teacher and your home is your child's first classroom.

Your baby begins learning at birth. Parents As Teachers can help you lay a strong foundation for your child's future success in school.

PAT is offered at no cost to all interested parents, throughout pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten, within the School of the Osage School District.
