South Region Parents as Teachers wishes you and your family well during these times of uncertainty. During the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been providing VIRTUAL and TELECOMMUNICATION personal visits. During Phase 2, we are delivering some in-person support too, e.g. OUTDOOR VISITS, when safe to do so and informed by public health guidelines such as Covid-19 screening and maintaining physical distancing.
We understand change can be very stressful and having positive routines and rituals can help us all manage during times of stress. As such, we continue to be here to help you and your family by providing you with personalized, custom supports and information through a combination of these different formats.
Virtual, phone and in-person visits have a lot in common - you and your child(ren) enjoy some one-on-one activity time (play time is a great de-stressor), you and your home visitor talk about developmental topics, celebrations, challenges and child development. And we help you learn about protective factors which help all families be strong and resilient in good times and in tough times.
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 young children learn, grow and develop to realize their full potential?

"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."
