HIPPY is Approved Model for Federal Home Visiting

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is a parent involvement, school readiness program that helps parents prepare their three, four, and five year old children for success in school and beyond. The parent is provided with a set of carefully developed curriculum, books and materials designed to strengthen their children's cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional and physical development.

HIPPY was named one of seven home visiting models that meets the evidence-based criteria of the Maternal, Infant, Early Childhood Home Visiting program (MIECHV).  HIPPY is uniquely positioned to help states and communities meet their goals of increasing school readiness among vulnerable populations.
