Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY)
The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) is a free two-year, at-home early learning and parenting program that supports parents to be their child’s first teacher.
Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters provides parents/carers and children with a structured, education-focused program that lays the foundations for success at school.
The HIPPY approach is based on evidence that children’s earliest and most powerful learning comes from their families. Evidence shows that encouraging literacy and numeracy in the home and community during early childhood sets children up for success in learning throughout their lives.
Families start HIPPY when their child is 3 years old. Families then continue into the second year of HIPPY when their child is 4 years old.
A tutor visits you in your home or in the community and shows you the HIPPY activities and storybooks that you can do with your children.
You will receive free fortnightly packs full of activities and resources that aim to build the foundation for a love of learning.
Steps to get involved:

The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters is funded by the Australian Government through the Department of Social Services
