In the U.S., six out of ten kids show up to kindergarten unprepared to learn.1 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. Parents as Teachers helps prepare children for kindergarten and beyond: Children score higher on measures of achievement, language ability, social development
