Parents as Teachers

Parents as Teachers

The Early Childhood Education Act programs help to increase parents’ confidence and improve their parenting skills. They can then better support their children’s education and development before and after school entry. Periodic screenings increase parents’ understanding of their children’s developmental progress, as well as alert them to any possible delays. Early intervention for identified problems helps improve chances that children will enter school with “healthy minds and bodies.”
