Being a parent is hard work!

In the first few years, children learn more and at a faster pace than at any other time in life. You help shape your child’s future through the kinds of experiences you provide. Your baby was born to learn, and as a parent you are your child’s first teacher.

The Birth to Three Program in School District 33 is a Parents as Teachers Program. The program focuses on:
  • Parent Child Interactions
  • Developmental Centered Parenting
  • Family Well Being and Connections to Resources
Families who are expecting a baby or with children under age 3 are screened for the program using our needs matrix.  Additionally, all children between the ages of 4 months and 3 years are screened using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire.  Please contact us for a screening today!
 
Referral forms can be found under the forms section.  Screening and enrollment is ongoing.
