Parents as Teachers | St. Gabriel Mercy Center, Inc.

December 7, 2020 - - Posted by

The Parents As Teachers (PAT) Program is an international organization that follows specific outlined structures and procedures that entails the optimal early development, learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents or caregivers. The two certified Parent Educators provide in-home services to children and families once a month the first three years of the child’s life to assess the child’s overall development. A ten-week parenting curriculum will be implemented. Saturday classes will be offered once a month; speakers will offer self-esteem, nutritional, anger management, and adult and teen parenting classes. Due to the lack of a support systems, St. Gabriel is proposing to open a Children’s Learning Lab. The Lab will allow the child(ren) of the program to be engaged in learning activities while their parents are attending monthly meetings and Saturday classes.
