Hippy – Home interaction program for parents and youngsters

Supporting you to be your child’s first teacher at home before they start school

HIPPY is a home-based school readiness program for families with children who are turning four, enrolled in pre-kinder or kindergarten, and who live in and around Launceston. HIPPY tutors give you support and resources to create a fun learning environment in your home. You and your child spend ten to fifteen miniutes each week day doing enjoyable learning activities. The quality time you spend together doing HIPPY gives them a great start for their early years at school.

You don’t need to be a trained teacher because our tutors are trained to help you every step of the way. They will visit you at home and show you how to do the HIPPY activities. There are group meetings where you can get new ideas about learning activties your child might enjoy, and also touch base with other parents doing HIPPY. Our tutors are paid, they are all parents who are doing HIPPY themselves and they work with you – not with your child.
