What is HIPPY? It is a two-year, home-based early childhood learning and parenting program that empowers parents and carers as their child’s first teacher and builds the confidence and skills to prepare them for school.
In the first year of HIPPY, the year before school begins, 4 years - 5 years of age, families learn skills to get their children ready for school
In the second year, parents learn more about supporting their children’s learning and development at school and at home.
Families spend 10 to 15 minutes a day doing educational activities with their children. A trained HIPPY Tutor meets with the family to practice HIPPY activities.
