What is Parents as Teachers?

Your child was born to learn, and you are their
first and most influential teacher!


Parents as Teachers is a early learning program sponsored by USD 473 for soon-to-be parents and parents with children up to kindergarten that are in the Chapman school district. Our mission is to provide the information, support and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life. We serve ALL FAMILIES with children from birth to age five (or kindergarten entry) in becoming their children’s first teachers. It is a voluntary program and provides services at no charge.
