The AVANCE Network operates several programs within the framework of a two-generation approach to whole family success. The largest of these is their Parent-Child Outcome Education Program, a program for parents and their children up to age 4. While the parents are in their own session learning about the importance of their role as a teacher and specific parenting skills, their children are taught school ready concepts and participate in stimulating activities.
CFRP is evaluating the impact of the AVANCE Parent-Child Outcome Education Program on parent participants' children's later Kindergarten readiness and other outcomes including special education enrollment rates, and reading and math scores.
