The PAT program is for ages 0-5yrs. They do monthly visits to give you info on your childs development and ideas on how to help your child prepare for school. If there are problem areas then they help you work with your child. They will bring a game, toy, or activity to do with your child. It's an hour visit... I did it with my youngest but didn't with my 2 youngest... I felt that if they would have had problems I would have but they were fine and I taught them what they needed to know for kindergarten. (abc,s, writing their name,colors, numbers up to 100, shapes,etc) If you feel you want to get in the loop with your school district, and see where your childs development is it's a good resource to have.. Some school districts have a free preschool program if your child is weak in a certain area...
