Portland Niños aims to reduce the academic and health disparities in Latino and immigrant children by providing support for families with children from birth to age five. Parents participate in weekly parenting support groups, educational workshops and monthly home visits from Hacienda’s Parent Educators, monitoring their child’s health and development. Children and infants engage in age-appropriate activities geared toward cognitive health and kindergarten preparation.
Hacienda’s Portland Niños program uses the nationally recognized Parents as Teachers Born to Learn™ curriculum, offering Spanish-English educational materials and activities that promote physical, cognitive and emotional development. Portland Niños youth also receive preventative screenings for health and development and referral resources. Research shows that parenting skills gained through participation in Parents as Teachers Born to Learn™ curriculum leads to school readiness and academic achievement.
