South Region Parents as Teachers wishes you and your family well during these times of uncertainty. During the health crisis we are providing VIRTUAL and TELECOMMUNICATION personal visits.
We are also facilitating VIRTUAL GROUP CONNECTIONS! Check out the Calendar of Events for details.
We recognize that change can be very stressful and having positive routines and rituals can help us all manage during times of stress. As such, we will continue to be here to help you and your family by providing you with personalized, custom supports and information through these new formats.
Virtual and phone visits look a lot like a home visit - you and your child(ren) will have some one-on-one activity time (play time is a GREAT de-stressor), you and your home visitor will talk about developmental topics, celebrations and challenges and child development - as you do every visit. And we'll continue to help you learn about protective factors which help all families be strong and resilient in good times and in tough times. We are here for you.
Research shows that there are Protective and "Promotive" Factors that build on your family's strengths and promote your child's development. At every Parents as Teachers personal visit, we help you strengthen and build protective factors to keep you, your child and your family healthy, strong and resilient.
See the info below and call 403-320-5983 for more information or to register.
How do you help your children learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential?

"Having someone take the time to talk with me about parenting makes me feel useful, needed and very necessary!"
"Being a parent isn't what I expected. You need to help them develop into their own little person, and I wouldn't have known how to do it without Parents as Teachers."
