WHO ARE PARENTS AS FIRST TEACHERS?

Parents as First Teachers (PAFT) is a not-for-profit organisation offering training, support and development for Early Years practitioners.


Parents as First Teachers offers a successful research and evidence-based parenting programme. We train professionals to work on a 1:1 basis with parents and their children pre-birth to five, using the Parents as Teachers Foundation Curriculum.

SUPPORT AFTER TRAINING FOR PRACTITIONERS

We encourage existing PAFT programmes to hold local network days enabling practitioners to share best practice and offer peer support. Wherever possible two members of the PAFT UK office will attend offering guidance.
