Learning for Life Family Support Program
Learning for Life Families

 

 

 

 

Would you like to...
Give your child the best possible start in life?
Give your child a solid foundation for school success?
Increase your confidence and knowledge of child development and parenting skills?
Share experiences and receive support from other families with young children?

We strongly believe a parent is a child’s best teacher.  We also understand it’s a valuable tool to have a second set of eyes! 

We are trained to observe. We check developmental skills & progress, we offer advice to parents for preparing children for school and offer age appropriate activities.

Each month we set a “play date” with you & your child (ages 0-5).  We will help you help them to develop important early childhood skills.  We also offer GetTogethers with other families & children for social interaction and enrichment opportunities.

 

Learning for Life provides:

  • Personalized home visits with a Parents as Teachers certified parent educator.
  • Health and developmental screening for your child.
  • GetTogethers for you and your family.
  • Instruction on child nutrition.
  • Help with understanding your child’s behavior.
  • Information about and referral to other community services.

To refer a client, arrange services, or for additional information call 712-644-2220 and ask for a Learning for Life parent educator, or e-mail swebb@harrisoncountyia.org.

  • Parents are the experts on their own children.
  • All parents deserve support in their parenting role.
  • All families have strengths and all parents want to be good parents.
