First Visitor at Peak Vista
First Visitor is a FREE volunteer home visitation program for new and/or expectant parents of children 0-3 years of age. First Visitor provides new and expectant parents with information on community-based resources, child health, nutrition, safety and child development. First Visitor's purpose is to help families support children's physical, emotional and intellectual development during the critical first three years.
We have 3 programs based on the age of your child:
Program A (prenatal to 12 mos.)
The initial contact can be made prenatally, within the first few weeks after delivery or up to 12 months after delivery. A volunteer will visit you to help celebrate the birth and welcome the baby into the community. Program A offers broad-based support to parents and caregivers, providing information on health, safety, childcare, community resources, health insurance, early brain development, developmental milestones, and highlights the importance of reading to children from birth.
Program B (12 to 24 mos.)
For parents of children 12 to 24 months of age, this program focuses on helping parents promote and encourage language development, a process which has been shown through research to have a significant link to school readiness and learning success later in life. Program B gives parents specific information, assessments, and tools to promote language development during the second year of life. Materials focus on the importance of talking with, encouraging, and playing with your child and include information on ways to enhance vocabulary development and positive interactions. The program is designed to help parents provide an enriched, supportive environment that promotes early literacy and teaches caregivers how they can become an encouraging partner in the "language dance."
Program C (24 to 36 mos.)
This newly developed program for parents of children 24 to 36 months of age takes a holistic approach to zero in on the topics that parents and experts say matter the most for children in this age group: positive guidance and discipline, language, motor, cognitive, and socio-emotional development, health and safety, and the critical importance of the parent-child attachment.
