Harrisburg Parents As Teachers


Lend & Learn
PAT facility @ Harrisburg Elementary

Our Lend & Learns occur every 3rd Friday morning of the month from 10am to 11am. Come check out our new & improved location.

Our Vision:

Parents are their children’s first and most influential teachers!

Since the early childhood years are the foundation on which success in school and life are built, our parent educators partner with families to help each child realize their full potential.

Group Connections:

Once a month, Parents as Teachers provides an opportunity for parents and families to get together and participate in a fun activity with their children. Group Connections are a great way to meet other parents in the area and to let your children interact with other children their age.

Lend & Learn:

Our Lend & Learn Toy Library provides a safe location in which young children and their parents can play with toys that develop their motor and cognitive skills. Our toys can be enjoyed at the library or borrowed for free. This also provides another opportunity to connect with other parents in the area.


Screenings are a great tool to let parents better understand their child’s development. Along with recognizing a child’s strengths, they can help identify areas of concern that may need follow-up services.
