HIPPY (Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters)
HIPPY is a home-based early learning and parenting program for families with young children. HIPPY has a specially designed and structured 45-week curriculum of learning activities spread across two years to assist children to achieve at school. HIPPY uses activities and storybooks that are fun and educational and are aligned to the Australian Early Years Framework and National Quality Standards. Home tutors schedule regular weekly or fortnightly visits with parents to work through activities in the family’s home or in community locations.
Parents are encouraged to participate in fortnightly parent groups.
