ParentCorps is a program that helps parents and teachers create safe, nurturing, and predictable home and classroom environments for young children. The three components of ParentCorps include professional learning for educators, a parenting program, and a social-emotional learning classroom curriculum. The program consists of 14 weekly sessions, which are held on school campuses and led by mental health professionals and pre-K teachers or staff.
Parents who participate in ParentCorps develop effective parenting practices, such as creating a safe, nurturing, and predictable home environment. Children demonstrate fewer child behavior problems in school, lower levels of mental health problems, improvements in school readiness, and higher teacher-rated academic performance in second grade.
