Family Support Network are proud to announce that we are now the Australian Parents As Teachers Foundational Training Office.

Our Start Together team – Sarah and Karen – have been working with families using the Parents As Teachers program for the past 5 years. Parents as Teachers (PAT) is an evidence-based home visiting model that promotes optimal early development, learning and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers.

PAT Foundational Training (0-3 years) runs over 3 days.

This training is for organisations and individuals working with families who have children from pre-natal to school age. Some of the areas covered will be:

  • Skills in supporting parenting behaviour that strengthens relationships within families
  • Techniques to enhance observation skills
  • Strategies to increase parent knowledge of early childhood development
  • Knowledge in early detection of developmental delays and health issues
  • Techniques to prevent child abuse and neglect
  • Information to increase children’s school readiness and success

Fact Sheets on the Parents As Teachers Model are available here (4MB PDF)
