OPAT stands for Oklahoma Parents as Teachers. A state-funded program, OPAT is a free and voluntary program for all families with children from birth to age three. OPAT supports parents as their children's first teachers in building foundations for living and learning.
The program is designed to provide parents the opportunity to enhance their child's development in all areas:
There are many life experiences which will influence learning. We hope your experience with OPAT will help prepare your children for a successful future in school and beyond.
School partnerships should begin when learning begins—at birth. This is the philosophy of OPAT. We believe parents are their children's first and most influential teachers.
The Durant Independent School District is eager to work with you as partners to help your child grow and develop to his or her maximum potential.
OPAT offers practical ideas and suggestions to make parenting even more fulfilling. As a participant, you will receive the following services:
