Ready for school, Ready for Life

About Parents as Teachers Program

Parents as Teachers is a evidence-based model implemented by Iberia R-5 School District and is offered to all families prenatally through kindergarten.

Children's development from the earliest years lays the foundation for what follows. In the U.S., 6 out 10 kids show up to kindergarten unprepared to learn. As their child's first and most important teacher, parents play a crucial role in supporting school readiness. Communities need a proven intervention that better supports parents in promoting their child's health, early development, and learning.
