United Way of El Paso County

The United Way of El Paso County is proud to provide the Parents as Teachers Program, an evidence-based, home visitation program that believes parents are their children’s first and most influential teachers.

The dynamic components of the Parents as Teachers Program are:

  • Personal visits, to increase their knowledge of early childhood development, school readiness and parenting behaviors.
  • Child Screenings to provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues.
  • Group Connections to provide parents an opportunity to increase social connections and share information about parenting issues and child development.
  • Resource Network to connect families to resources that help them address their needs and reach their goals.

Parents as Teachers Program emphasis  on three areas are:

  • Parent-Child Interactions: to increase children’s school readiness and school success such as literacy, communication skills, and emotional cues.
  • Development-Centered Parenting: to assist parents with understanding and observing their child’s developmental progress and adapt their parenting behaviors to meet the child’s needs based on their stage of development.
  • Family Well-Being: to empower families to implement strategies and use resources.
