Parents as Teachers

Your baby begins learning at birth. Brain growth and development happens more rapidly during the first five years of life than at any other time. Parents as Teachers (PAT) can help you build a strong foundation for your child's future success in school and in life.

PAT is offered at no cost to all interested families living within the boundaries of the School District of Washington. This website provides parents with information regarding our program, its services and how to enroll. Please take a look around to learn more about this wonderful program.
