ABOUT THE HIPPY PROGRAM

HIPPY is a structured, home-based model focused on parent-child centered learning designed to remove barriers and to reach low income families with limited education to become their child's first teacher. Through HIPPY, parents not only become actively involved in the lives of their children, but they also assist their children to reach their full potential as they prepare to enter school.

As a HIPPY Home Visitor you will supply weekly HIPPY activity packets and follow the program method of instruction with the parent or caregiver that is designed to strengthen their children's cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional and physical development.
