RESOURCES & TOOLS
Parents as Teachers offers a variety of resources and tools designed to promote parent education and early learning. Different curricula and training options are available from our Parents as Teachers Model to Foundational Curriculum and Training to our à la carte Knowledge Studio products.
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.
Our approach supports every product and service Parents as Teachers offers, from support around program design, to the development of curricula and trainings, to the guidance for implementation of the Parents as Teachers model. It is infused in the big things like our organizational identity as well as the smallest details of our work, like word choices on parent handouts.
The Parents as Teachers eStore offers resources and tools available to everyone, like Knowledge Studio products, as well as tools available only to Subscribers and Affiliates, such as our Foundational I and Foundational II training and curricula.
TRAINING & CURRICULUM
In our three-day Foundational Training, parent educators and other family support professionals learn to use the Foundational Curriculum effectively as they work with families to partner, facilitate, and reflect.
This interactive, face-to-face training gives participants a better understanding of what it means to partner, facilitate and reflect with parents whose children are growing in independence and abilities as they approach school entry. It includes topics such as approaches to learning, neuroscience, child development, developmental concerns, transitions to early care and education and family engagement.
This special division of Parents as Teachers offers specialized curricula and training, both online and face-to-face, in a variety of topic-specific areas for any professional working with children and families. These à la carte options take into account your learning style, time and budget and allow you to come back time and again to add expertise to your learning portfolio.
What You Do Matters is a six-week series that combines short parent-educator discussions followed by parent-child interaction.
Parents as Teachers is continuously developing and testing new parent education and early learning tools.
