The Blue Springs School District realizes that the early years of a child's life are critical for optimal growth and development and establish the foundation for success in school and beyond. To assure the information, skills, and encouragement parents need to be effective as their child’s first and most influential teacher, the district makes available specialized supports through its Parents as Teachers (PAT) program. Participants benefit from powerful, results-proven resources and strategies that are relevant and widely applicable to today’s families, especially those in vulnerable circumstances. District Parent Educators provide practical, pertinent, free-of-charge assistance; conduct periodic screenings for the early detection of developmental delays and health issues; host fun and engaging family activities; and facilitate parent and group meetings. Ultimately, the PAT program partners with families, district early childhood and transitional staff, day care providers, outreach agencies, and community organizations to help parents understand the important role they play regarding school readiness and educational involvement. If interested in visiting with a Parent Educator, please contact the PAT office at 224-1300.
