Lee's Summit R7 Parents as Teachers

September 2021

We are in full swing!

School is back in session and parent educators are out doing visits! We are so excited and happy to see all our families once again!

Please remember, it is not your parent educator's decision to do visits outside, but a requirement of the district. If you do not wish to do outside visits, your parent educator can connect with you virtually. We know it has been warm outside and are all hoping for cooler weather. Please know we are all doing our best to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Thank you for your support and for continuing to work with our programming requirements.

3 to Pre-K Developmental Screenings

You must reside within the LSR7 boundaries to participate in a developmental screening.

We are doing screenings for children ages three to pre-k in person at Great Beginnings at this time. During a developmental screening your child will go with a parent educator for a brief assessment of language, motor, cognitive and speech skills. While your child is completing their screening, one parent or guardian will fill out information regarding social skills, opportunities for social interactions, and self-help skills. Once completed, the parent educator who completed the screening will conference with you and the child in private.

Eligibility and dates to sign-up and additional information for screening can be found on our website: http://pat.lsr7.net
