PARENTCHILD+ CORE MODEL OVERVIEW
ParentChild+ is an evidence-based school readiness model that preempts the achievement gap by providing young children and their parents with learning tools and skills. The program is based on these four pillars:
Reaching families where they are:
Families with young children receive 92 twice-weekly 30-minute visits to support healthy development and educational success.
Our nationwide network of program sites hires community-based Early Learning Specialists who share a linguistic and cultural background with the families with whom they work.
Promoting parent-child interaction:
Early Learning Specialists provide families with high quality learning tools and guidance to stimulate parent-child interaction, develop language, early literacy, social-emotional skills, and build school readiness.
Facilitating strong community connections:
Early Learning Specialists become trusted advisors, connecting families and home-based providers to other community resources including food, housing, medical, and educational services.
