This three-day training lays the foundation for the Parents as Teachers approach to home visitation within an early childhood system and centers around three main areas:
Parent-Child Interaction – enhancing child development and supporting the development of positive parenting behaviors
Development Centered Parenting – understanding parents’ perspectives and facilitating parenting decisions around developmental topics
Family Well-Being – recognizing the impact of the family system on child development and partnering with parents to strengthen protective factors.
Successful completion of the Foundational Training results in approved use of the Foundational Curriculum. Individuals from affiliate programs will enroll in the Model Implementation Course to achieve model certification. Foundational Training is encouraged but not required for new supervisors.
