What is PACT? Parent and Child Together (PACT) early learning program provides an opportunity for parents/caregivers to engage in structured and unstructured play with their young children with the support of a teacher who models developmentally appropriate parenting techniques and provides education and coaching. Additionally, PACT is a place for families to meet other families, get connected to resources in the community, and receive help accessing additional, more intensive services they may need.
Why is PACT Important? A growing body of research points to the important role parents and other caregivers play in supporting a young child’s brain development. 90% of a child’s brain development happens before age 5. Through positive interactions, a baby’s brain architecture is formed, laying the foundation for future learning and development.
