What is HIPPY?

HIPPY is a free home-based parenting and early childhood learning program, which runs over two years. It empowers and supports parents as their child’s first teacher, giving children the best chance of a successful early school experience.

The HIPPY program is for families who have a child who will start school the following year and can do the HIPPY activities at a regular time each day and who are willing to commit to two years to complete the program. A trained HIPPY Tutor meets with the family to practice HIPPY activities.
