    Parents as Teachers is an international early childhood parent education and family support organization serving families throughout pregnancy until their child enters kindergarten, usually age 5.  The service model is designed to enhance child development and school achievement through parent education accessible to all families.  It is a universal access model.
    Recognizing that all families can benefit from support, Parents as Teachers families come in all configurations, from all socio-economic levels, and from rural, urban and suburban communities.  The program is adaptable to fit community needs.  It is a national model, but a local program.  Family participation is voluntary.
    Parents as Teachers National Center develops curricula, trains early childhood professionals, and certifies parent educators to work with parents to provide them with parenting support and information on their developing child.
