All children will learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential.
To provide the information, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.
The work of Parents as Teachers is grounded in these basic beliefs:
Parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.
The early years of a child's life are critical for optimal development and provide the foundation for success in school and life.
Established and emerging research should be the foundation of parent education and family support curricula, training, materials and services.
All young children and their families deserve the same opportunities to succeed, regardless of any demographic, geographic, or economic considerations.
An understanding and appreciation of the history and traditions of diverse cultures is essential in serving families.
