Personal visits take place a minimum of monthly, typically in the home, using ‘Born to Learn’ Curriculum plans that are appropriate for your child’s development and age.With the support of Parents as First Teachers, you can expand, nurture and enrich your child’s learning experience, and can strengthen and develop a constructive relationship with them.
- build rapport with the family

- model, consult, and coach on parenting practices
