The vision of Parents as Teachers is that all children will learn, grow, and develop to realize their full potential. The organization provides information, support, and encouragement to parents to help their children develop optimally during the crucial early years of life. 

A Rural Trust webinar earlier this month featured the i3 "Improving Educational Outcomes for American Indian Children" project, BabyFACE. This Parents as Teachers initiative provides services to high-needs Native American children ages prenatal to three years and to their families.

BabyFACE Project Director Marsha Gebhardt describes the program, which provides home visits in isolated rural areas, and its cultural appropriateness and use of resources that are readily available in rural areas.
