Parents as Teachers Infants - Age 36 months -
Being a parent is the most important job there is. The free, voluntary Blue Valley Parents as Teachers program is designed to help district families with children birth to age 36 months. From the beginning, the Blue Valley Parent Educators support parents with the knowledge and skills to do a good job. As their child's first teachers, parents make a difference. For parents with a concern about their child's development, hearing or vision, the district provides access to monthly screenings for all children. Registration in the Parents as Teachers program is limited.
Early Childhood Ages 36 months - 5 years
The Peer Model Program provides an opportunity for typically-developing children to be integrated into our Early Childhood Special Education classrooms to serve as role models for our children with special needs. Peer Model students provide positive peer interactions, demonstrate play skills and model appropriate language and behavior for children with special needs while in the classroom setting. We have a limited number of slots available for Peer Models.
