• What is Parenting Partnerships?

    Parenting Partnerships is the parent education program for York School District One.  Our mission is to support parents by providing education, information and resources that they can use in their role as their child's first and most important teacher.  Parent educators use the Parents as Teachers  curriculum for families with children from prenatal until their child is five and enters kindergarten.  Parents as Teachers provides a multi-level approach that addresses the child's developmental ages and stages and promotes positive parenting through teaching and providing experiences that will enhance their child's learning and better prepare them for school readiness.  Parents gain knowledge through personal visits with a parent educator, parent group meetings, screenings and resource networks. 

    Other services offered are periodic parent education sessions, playgroup sessions and educational resource library to check out materials as needed.  

    Parenting Partnerships is housed with the Family Resource Center (beside York One Academy) and offers other services such as Affinity Health Center, Tri-District Adult Education and York Head Start.
