• Parents As Teachers - Training

    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)

    During 3 full days of training you will learn how to use the PAT Online Curriculum in Home Visiting.
