Children’s earliest years set the stage for their healthy development and life-long learning. Massachusetts PIRC proudly supports four early childhood programs in Massachusetts which use the research-based Parents As Teachers (PAT) parent education and family support model. PAT programs support parents of children ages birth to five in their role as their child’s first and most influential teachers. PAT programs help parents make the most of those earliest years to foster their child’s healthy development and a life-long love of learning. The following early childhood programs are partnering with the Massachusetts PIRC to provide the award-winning PAT program to families in their communities:
