The Newburg School District Parents as Teachers progam promotes optimal early development, learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. This is accomplished through visits with the family, yearly developmental screenings, and group activities and events.
In Missouri Parents as Teachers is a part of the Early Childhood Education Act programs which 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.”
