Welcome to Brentwood Parents As Teachers!

Children begin learning at birth. As a parent, you are your child's first and most influential teacher.

Brentwood Parents as Teachers is a voluntary, free early childhood parent education and family support program for Brentwood School District residents. The program is designed to help all parents give their children the best possible start in life in helping lay a strong foundation for your child's future success in school. Parents as Teachers provides parents with information on child development, prenatal through age five, and involves parents in learning activities with their child that encourage language and intellectual growth, physical and social-emotional skills. The goal of our program is to provide a strong educational program which guides children in their construction and quest for knowledge. The Brentwood School District strives to promote a lifelong love of learning. Children, parents, and parent educators are all a community of learners growing together in our relationships and knowledge.
