The Mission of DuPage Regional Office of Education Parents as Teachers

The mission of the DuPage Regional Office of Education is to collaboratively build and

sustain a high-quality county educational community for all youth. It is the mission of the model to promote optimal early development, learning, and health of children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers. We provide FREE information, support, and encouragement parents need to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life.


The goals of Parents As Teachers is to:

• Increase parent knowledge of early childhood development

• Improve parenting practices

• Provide early detection of developmental delays and health issues

• Increase children’s school readiness and school success


Parents who participate in Parents as Teachers are more confident about their parenting and are more involved in their children’s schooling, which is a key component of a child’s success in and out of school.

During the stay at home order, we know that many families have had to loosen their screen time rules just to get through the week. To help you get back on track, May has been designated as Screen-Free Saturdays, an opportunity to take a break from the seemingly endless noise of quarantine life and recharge for the coming week; a chance to play, explore, and rediscover the joys of life beyond ad-supported screens.

To help you fill your Saturdays, we suggest these resources.
