Take a look at what this summer has to offer...



Parents As Teachers of Porter County is a universal access, early childhood family education program that provides free, one-on-one guidance and support to parents interested in shaping their birth to five year old children into healthy and functional children ready to enter school and eager to succeed in life. Our mission is to help families participating in our program through parent education, early literacy coaching and family support. We provide personal one-on-one monthly visits, parent/child workshops, parent only forums, developmental screenings and resource networking.

We are dedicated to ensuring children in our community are provided with every opportunity to succeed. By working with parents on areas such as early literacy, social-emotional development, gross and fine motor skills, PAT children are better prepared in the necessary Kindergarten readiness skills.  More often they also love to read.  Parents As Teachers of Porter County is a 501c3 non profit organization and is 100% self funded. 

Why PAT?


In the first few years, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in their life. You help shape your child's future through the kinds of experiences you provide. Your baby was born to learn, and as a parent, YOU are your child's first and most important teacher.


In the Parents As Teachers (PAT) parent education and family support program, PAT-certified parent educators are trained to translate valuable scientific research on early brain development in to specific when, what, how and why information for families. By learning what to expect during each stage of development, parents can easily capture the teachable moments in everyday life to enhance their child's language development, intellectual growth, social development and motor skills.
