Please subscribe to our eight page newsletter


Our eight page newsletter is full of advice and support for families. Articles are intentionally brief because we know that as a parent of a young child, time is at a premium. First Teacher is published 11 times a year and is also available in Spanish.

The cost for First Teacher is $20 for one year or $35 for two years. Newsletters have articles on parenting issues such as discipline, appropriate child development, health and safety, fostering self-esteem, food and nutrition, encouraging curiosity, language development, immunizations, handling anger, sleeping and feeding problems, activities for young children, getting ready for kindergarten, selecting child care and more.

In some areas (Sequim, Port Angeles, Bremerton, Clallam County) the program is funded and is free of charge. We do, however, accept any donations to help support the cost of developing a database, printing and mailing First Teacher.
