Parents as Teachers

During the years between birth and kindergarten, there are important times when specific kinds of learning must take place for your child to develop to the fullest. Parents as Teachers can help you to capture those windows of opportunity so that your child starts school ready to succeed.

All young children and their families deserve the same opportunities to succeed. The mission of Parents as Teachers is to provide information, support, and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.

KCPS Parents as Teachers shares that mission by providing established and emerging research-based information to parents to promote parent knowledge of early childhood development and best parenting practices, while understanding and appreciating the diverse cultures and traditions of families who reside within the Kansas City Public School District boundaries.

Parents as Teachers is a voluntary program that offers personal home visits, social activities, playgroups, parenting classes, and various health-related and developmental screenings to participating families. The early years of life are critical for optimal development and provide the foundation for success in school, and in life and parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.
