Parents as Teachers

Your baby was born to learn and as your child’s first teacher, you make a difference! Parents as Teachers can help you make that difference. Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a home visitation program for Sheboygan County parents which uses research-based information to help you and your baby make the most of the early years. Parents as Teachers is a free, voluntary program that supports parents, answers your questions, increases your parenting skills, and helps provide early detection of any potential developmental delays and health issues in your child.

HOME VISITS
Trained, certified, friendly Parent Educators live and work in the community and can’t wait to support you at the beginning of your child’s life! Even better, they’ll come to you—working around your weekday schedule to find the most convenient time and place to meet. Regular visits happen at least monthly, last about an hour, and include play-based activities that are fun for your baby and informative for you as a parent. During these visits, Parent Educators also provide helpful information about age appropriate parenting skills and ideas for activities that strengthen developmental skills—including language, thinking, and movement. Your Parent Educator can answer your questions, provide information, connect you to resources, and support you as a parent.

ELIGIBILITY and ENROLLMENT
Parents as Teachers is open to Sheboygan County parents who are pregnant with, or parenting a child who is under the age of 12 months. Email [email protected] and ask to enroll in Parents as Teachers or call us at the Family Resource Center at 920-892-6706 to learn more.

The Literacy Council helps adults who want to read, write, and speak English better so they can achieve their goals for work, education, family life, and community involvement. LC fills in the gap for adults who need literacy services. Learning to read/write/speak English are critical skills for getting a job, helping children with schoolwork, communicating with teachers, doctors, landlords, and others.

We train caring, patient community volunteers to provide free one-on-one tutoring for motivated adult learners across Sheboygan County.

The Literacy Council collaborates with other community organizations to provide literacy services in Sheboygan County. When Sheboygan County adults have the literacy skills they need, our entire community benefits with a more qualified workforce, a higher standard of living, more involved citizens, improved health care outcomes, and parents who are able to support their child’s schooling.
