Impact at Every Level

Parents as Teachers operates in local communities across the United States and around the world. With more than 1,000 affiliates using our evidence-based model, we nurture positive change for every child and every family.

Our Approach

The Parents as Teachers approach is to partner, facilitate and reflect. These are parallel processes that occur 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.
