Parents as Teachers promotes the optimal early development, learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. We provide an evidence-based, research-informed home visiting model and are a center for innovation in promising practices and flexible, adaptive designs.


The new Head Start Program Performance Standards require home-based programs to  implement a developmentally appropriate research-based home visiting and parenting  curriculum by August 1, 2017.

Home visitors are required to have a home visitor Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential or equivalent by August 1, 2018.

The Parents as Teachers home visiting Foundational Curriculum and Foundational 2 Curriculum: 3 Years Through Kindergarten meet these crucial curriculum requirements.
