Welcome to Brentwood Parents As Teachers
Children begin learning at birth. As a parent, you are your child's first and most influential teacher.

Parents as Teachers is a voluntary early childhood parent education and family support program designed to help all parents give their children the best possible start in life in helping lay a strong foundation for your child's future success in school. Parents as Teachers provides parents with information on child development, prenatal through age five, and involves parents in learning activities with their child that encourage language and intellectual growth, physical and social-emotional skills. The goal of our program is to provide a strong educational program which guides children in their construction and quest for knowledge. The Brentwood School District strives to promote a lifelong love of learning. Children, parents, and parent educators are all a community of learners growing together in our relationships and knowledge.

If you would like to learn more about our free program, please call Beth Clay at (314) 262-8521 Ext. 6011.

Personal Visits
Visits with a Parent Educator will provide you with:
  • Handouts on child development and what to look for as your child grows.
  • An occasion to discuss specific questions about your child.
  • Educational age-appropriate activities for your child.
Group Meetings
Group meeting topics for each program year are varied and include meetings on key topics such as health and safety, positive discipline, and language development. Please view the link at the bottom of the page for our group meeting and Drop-In dates and times.

Drop-In
Friday Drop-In Activity dates offer an opportunity for your child to experience informal play and group activities with other children. Drop In is a great time for parents to meet other PAT families and gain some ideas for age-appropriate activities that your child will enjoy.

Screenings
A yearly screening of language, social, and motor skills and hearing and vision ensures that your child is developing well.
