Parents as Teachers

The Parents as Techers (PAT) program is an initiative by Hōʻala that empowers and supports Native Hawaiian parents in the Wai'anae Community to become their children's first teacher. Parents meet with a certified PAT educator for free monthly in-home visits to gain knowledge in early childhood and brain development.

  • Participate in parent-child activities using Born to Learn™ curricula.
  • Build and establish a strong parent-child relationship.
  • Give children ages 0–3 the best possible start in life and realize their potential.
