As a parent, you are your child's first and most important teacher. You begin teaching your baby during your pregnancy - through your touch and your voice. From the start, you shape your child's future by providing a variety of experiences. Parents as Teachers (PAT), a voluntary family education and support program, can assist you in giving your baby the best possible start in life. Let PAT help you begin at the beginning to lay the foundation for your child's success in school and in life.

PAT's international program is designed to offer developmental information and support to all parents of children from prenatal to age 5. The goal of the program is to help parents give their child the best possible start in life. Parents as Teachers provides practical, effective ways to encourage learning for all Missouri families with children prenatal to age five. It offers Personal Visits and Screenings. You will find more information about each of these below.
