The Clarkston Development Foundation was proud to host the Parents as Teachers National Center Three years to Kindergarten Training on September 21 and 22.Coming from across the state, from Cobb, Coweta, Dekalb, and Habersham counties, 25 parent educators participated in the event held in Clarkston.  The national training event was provided space at The Clarkston First Baptist Church Family Life Center on Church Street.  Participants were treated to a wonderful Mediterranean meal from BARAKA SHAWARMA

Two of CDF’s parent educators attended the training and are now certified to provide Parents as Teachers to families with children ages three to kindergarten.  The training re-enforced the PAT principles one of which is that parents are their children’s first teachers.  It provided parent educators with theory as well as hands-on activities to help parents support their child’s growth and learning.  Topics included child development, preparing for transitions from home to early learning and school, parent leadership, and more.
