CONTENT ACTIVITY

  • Take a second to read each slide

Content example 1

CONTENT (example 1)

The Colorado Parent & Child Foundation was founded in 1991 by a team of volunteers dedicated to the vision that parents are their child's first and most influential teachers who prepare their children for success in school and life.

To achieve this vision, the Colorado Parent & Child Foundation promotes and supports high quality early childhood education programs and family initiatives which build parent involvement and school readiness. This is accomplished through our work with two evidence-based international early childhood home visitation models: Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) and Parents as Teachers (PAT).

HIPPY and PAT programs offer home-based, parent involved, early learning opportunities and provide solutions that strengthen families and help children realize success by beginning school ready to learn. Programs are implemented by partnering agencies throughout the state.

Short term outcomes show:

  • Better birth outcomes

  • Enhanced parent-child interactions

  • Greater understanding of child development

  • Higher rate of immunization

  • Early detection of delays/Fewer unremediated delays

  • Stronger development of early literacy skills

  • Increased social competence

  • Improved positive parenting practices

  • Greater parent involvement in learning

    Longer term outcomes show:

  • Reduction in the frequency and severity of child maltreatment

  • Stronger school performance

  • Fewer behavioral problems

  • Higher rates of high school graduation
