Through Parents as Teachers, parents learn the skills to help make the most out of the those important early-learning years, encouraging language development, intellectual growth, social and motor skills, and strengthening the parent-child relationship. PAT offers assistance to families in their role as a child's first teacher. Enrollment is open to anyone who has children from birth through two and a half years of age who resides within the Kearney R-1 School District.
The program offers a variety of support and information services at no cost to families. Information is available in the areas of cognitive, language and fine/gross motor development during personalized home visits and group meetings. Periodic health screenings to test hearing and vision are also offered.
If a child appears to have significant developmental delays, PAT refers parents to First Steps, Missouri's Infant/Toddler Early Intervention Program. PAT also provides screenings for three- to five-year-old children to determine if a referral to The Acorn Patch (Early Childhood Special Education) is needed.
