HIPPY programme for school readiness – North Shore

Friday 25/01/2019

The HIPPY programme is currently available at Beach Haven Primary School.

HIPPY (Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters) helps children to improve school readiness and parents to teach their child to achieve goals for school. It is a government-funded transition to school programme. All materials are provided and every week families receive the workbooks through the visit of a tutor, who comes to their home to train how to apply the activities with their child. Through fun activities your child learns basic skills in Mathematics, English, Science, etc.

The Beach Haven HIPPY coordinator is currently looking for families who are interested in doing HIPPY, especially those who are immigrants, refugees and low-income families. The program aims to help isolated families and integrate them into the community. HIPPY also helps parents who have English as a second language as this also helps parents learn English. They learn English by teaching their children. The coordinator can visit you as an introduction and to present the HIPPY Programme.
