Do you want to teach your own child to love books and learning? We invite your preschooler to become a HIPPY!
The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters is a home-based parenting and early childhood program for families with children aged 3 to 6 years. Our service employs a Hippy coordinator and local mums who are HIPPY home tutors. Your tutor will visit your home to help You become your child’s first teacher, providing games and stories for families to enjoy together.
How does it work?
Your tutor brings the activities to your home (or wherever it suits you) and show you how to do them with your child. The activities include learning about colour, shape numbers and letters. You are already your child’s earliest and most powerful teacher, and this makes learning fun and easy.
Each HIPPY child will receive their own box of materials including weekly activity packs, craft supplies and story books. Hippy has 45 activity packs delivered over two years.
To join our program or for further information, please contact our HIPPY coordinator Sarah Coffey on 3808 1684
