Parents As First Teachers

A strengths-based intervention programme

Core Values

  • The early years of a child’s life are critical for optimal development and so provide the foundation for success in school and in life
  • Parents are their children’s first and most influential teachers
  • Established and emerging research findings 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
  • Our goal  is to provide leadership, education and support for the implementation of high quality programmes that enable parents to become their children’s best first teachers.
