HOW IT WORKS

The core of the HIPPY program is a structured home visit that delivers a curriculum based on the needs of children to become school-ready. Well-trained peer Home Visitors deliver books and high-quality curriculum activities directly to parents who then work 15 to 20 minutes a day with their own three, four, and five-year-old children.
