Charleston Family Resource Center
Parents As Teachers

Welcome to our website!


Parents as Teachers (PAT), an in-home family education program, offers free and voluntary support for parents with children from prenatal to kindergarten entry. The program is designed to give all children the best possible start in life. It is geared to help parents make the most of these crucial learning years, by being their child’s first and most important teacher. PAT promotes parent involvement in language and intellectual growth, as well as motor and social skills. You can contact Kaysha Jackson at (304) 344-1656 for more information about how to enroll interested families.
