The Bonner Springs/Edwardsville Parents as Teachers program is an early-learning program for families within the USD 204 boundaries with children birth to age three.

What is the Parents As Teachers program?

The Parents As Teachers Program is a FREE year-round program which offers parents:

Research-based information on how children grow and develop;

Types of activities and toys that will foster learning and nurture development;

Methods of positive discipline; new techniques for problem solving; realistic expectations of child behavior; and

Attitudes that will raise children's self esteem. 

What services will be provided?

Personal Visits:  Certified parent educators, trained in child development and home visiting, go to each family's home on a regular basis. Visit times are flexible so that all families can participate.

Developmental Screenings:   The developmental screenings serve two purposes – to reassure parents when the child is developing on target, and to identify problems early to assist parents with appropriate interventions.

Group Connections:  Group meetings for parents allow parents to share ideas, express concerns and obtain additional parenting information.
