Parents as Teachers

Atlantic, IA – The Parents as Teachers (PAT) program through Cass County Public Health is looking for young families to enroll in their program.

PAT provides home visits to help young children grow up healthy, safe, and ready to learn. The PAT
educators help communities partner with parents to do a better job of preparing children for a stronger start in life and for greater success in school.

PAT Educators Nancy Gibson and Victoria Means provide monthly home visits to families with young children—from prenatal visits through entering Kindergarten. During those visits, they work on getting a complete health history, doing developmental screenings to catch any delays as early as possible, check on immunizations, and much more. Children in the program also have access to free vision, hearing, and dental checks.
