Because parents are a child’s first and most important teacher

For expectant parents and children through age 5, Parents as Teachers (PAT) provides regular personal visits from a parent educator and group sessions with other families.

Screening and assessments help identify developmental concerns for children. PAT can then connect families to outside resources they may need.

Parents as Teachers programs are available throughout South Carolina from a variety of partners, with a blend of state, federal, and local funding.
