Sunrise Children’s Foundation offers various, free home-based early childhood education programs that empower parents to be their child’s first teacher. The parent is provided with a set of developmentally appropriate materials, curriculum and books designed to strengthen their children’s cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social / emotional and physical development.

How Home Visiting Helps Parents

The Sunrise Children’s Foundation home visiting programs begin with the basic tenet that all parents want the very best for their children, but might need support and help in developing their children’s potential. Our friendly parent educators teach parents fun and easy ways to engage their children in educational activities. We even provide additional support through group meetings and special events.

How Home Visiting Helps Children

  • Our curriculum focuses on language development, problem solving, logical thinking and perceptual skills.
  • With the goal of school readiness at its core, our curriculum covers the skills necessary to acquire reading and other literacy skills.
  • Parent educators personalize each lesson to ensure it is developmentally appropriate and builds on the child’s interests and maturing skills.
  • Home visiting fosters both social-emotional and physical development in children.
  • Home visiting gives parents the tools, skills and confidence they need to be their child’s first teacher.

Our certified parent educators help parents to engage their children in daily learning activities that promote literacy and school readiness. Serving income eligible families throughout Clark County, trained Parent Educators conduct year-round sessions for a maximum of three years to enable the children to enter school ready to learn with the ability and confidence to succeed.
