Parents as Teachers
Bright Beginnings: This is a free Parents-As-Teachers program run by Kent Intermediate School District. Each school in the KISD has a Bright Beginnings Parent Educator who is available to parents of children ages 0-5. You can participate on one of two levels. Level 1: Sign up for a newsletter and calendar of events. You can attend any playgroup in any district. Playgroups are for all ages 0-5 and parents stay to play with their children. Level 2: Sign up for home visits from the Bright Beginnings teacher in your school district. They bring activities and games for your child to do at home, and offer support and knowledge about child development. Bright Beginnings also provides free hearing and vision screenings.
