Parents as Teachers

PAT logo website

Welcome to Kearney Parents as Teachers program (PAT), and thank you for your inquiry. We are an early childhood parent education program that believes you are your child’s first and most influential teacher. We are here to support you in your parenting journey. PAT programs are offered in every school district in the state of Missouri. We are also offered throughout the United States and internationally. The patrons of the Kearney R-1 School district are very fortunate to have this program available to them. We are funded largely by the 2011 Tax levy and to a lesser degree by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. We are for all families of children pregnancy up to Kindergarten entry. Research shows that PAT children are better prepared for school entry and they score higher on standardized testing all the way up through third grade.

Many thanks to all of the families who turn on porch lights at night, walk parent educators to their car doors to assure their safety and clear paths of icy, snow covered sidewalks. Those thoughtful acts are important and appreciated very much.
