One of the largest of its kind in Central Texas, our bilingual parenting program provides parents the skills they need to prepare their children for kindergarten.

The Program

Modeled after the University of Texas Health Science Center's Children's Learning Institute Play and Learning Strategies curriculum, our bilingual parenting program is offered in partnership with community-based literacy service providers. Through 14 weekly sessions with parenting coaches, parents of young children learn how to support their children's cognitive and social-emotional development.

The program is currently offered at the following locations:

  • Austin Independent School District

  • Manor Independent School District

  • Del Valle Independent School District

  • Manos de Cristo

  • Foundation Communities

  • El Buen Samaritano
