How do I enroll in PAT?
Parents as Teachers Early Education Home Visiting Programs are located throughout the state. Most programs are sponsored by School Districts, Education Service Cooperatives, Head Start Agencies, and Community-based Organizations such as our program sponsored by the JURHA.
Each Arkansas PAT program has an operating agreement with Arkansas Children’s Hospital, the state sponsoring agency. This agreement entitles local programs to purchase the PAT curriculum, attend all workshops, trainings, and conferences sponsored by Arkansas PAT. Program assessments and reviews are conducted annually at each site to ensure that appropriate quality early childhood home visiting services are provided to families.
To enroll in this local program serving Craighead and Greene county areas you may simply call Janelle Ovunda, our local PAT coordinator at 1.870.919.3452 and ask for an application or more information. You may also contact the state PAT office at 1.501.364.3671.
