IN HOME VISITATION
Home visits are designed for families with at least one child between the ages of 0 and 5 years old. A certified Parent Educator will come into the home (or another designated location) at a convenient time for the families to act as a resource by providing helpful information, new ideas, and just basic support to the parents.
Dates: Meeting times are available Monday-Friday
Times: At the family’s convenience.
Ages: Families with at least one child prenatal to 5 years.
Focus: Positive development through the early childhood years, positive and effective discipline, family bonding and positive family relationships.
What can you expect? Inviting someone into your home (or other location if you would prefer) is not easy. Our Certified Parent Educator will initially meet with you for about an hour. We recognize that parents are their children's first and most influential teacher. During her first visit you can expect the Parent Educator will ask many questions about your child (what you love and what is challenging). She will gather information and provide fun activities for your child in a non-judgmental and non-intrusive way. Subsequent visits can be arranged for varied amounts of time according to your family's needs and schedule. Each visit will feature quality information on your child's development, fun activities for your child, and support for you! The home visiting program has three goals: parent-child interaction, developmental milestones, and family well being.
