Parents As Teachers

parents as teachers​Parents as Teachers (PAT) is a free early learning program for Cabarrus County parents with children from newborn to age 5. As a first-time parent, we all have many questions about how to raise our children. PAT wants all children to have the opportunity to learn, grow, and develop at their maximum potential.

PAT teaches you how to:

  • Foster the growth of your kids
  • Teach and foster problem solving, language and social skills, and thinking
  • Choose activities and toys that inspire curiosity and creativity in your child
  • Determine what type of discipline is appropriate and effective for your child

Four dynamic components of PAT:

  • Personal Visits
  • Group Connections
  • Resource Network
  • Child Screening

how to apply

PAT is available to Cabarrus County residents with children ages 0-5.
