Early Education and Health Care for Parents and Children

Health care begins early - and these organizations bring education to parents as well as health and learning boosts to children.

The Parents as Teachers program offers home visiting to parents with newborns through the schools. A number of other national and regional programs provide parenting education as well as support for prenatal to pre-school children.

Recognizing that parents are their children's best first teachers, families receive child development instruction and parenting support in their homes from a trained parent educator for the child's first three years, and in some locations, until the child enters kindergarten. Home visiting models have been highly effective in strengthening parenting skills, promoting healthy child development, and addressing child abuse and neglect.

Research just released in the Journal of Primary Prevention adds to the evidence that Parents as Teachers improves parenting practices in ways that lead to both school readiness and academic achievement.

Home Visiting Programs for Young Parents and Families

Five national home visiting organizations —Healthy Families America, Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters, Nurse-Family Partnership, Parents as Teachers National Center and The Parent-Child Home Program—share their joint vision for home visiting programs. Shared program goals include:

  • Prevention services in general are underfunded and a low priority on our nation’s domestic policy agenda.

  • Home visitation is a service delivery strategy that is essential to better support our country’s youngest children. Building relationships with parents and children in their home environments is a uniquely valuable approach to nurturing parental competence and successful early childhood development.

  • Communities require a strong continuum of effective programs for children and families in need of support throughout their life spans.

  • All of these programs commit to maintaining and enhancing capacity to use solid and rigorous research and evaluation to implement programs effectively and to assess and strengthen outcomes for children and families.
