Child (and Parent) Information & Counselling
The Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) is a two year home based early childhood learning and parenting program that empowers parents and carers as their child’s first teacher. The HIPPY program is supported by research that shows that a child’s most powerful learning comes from their family, even when they are experiencing disadvantage.
In the first year of HIPPY (the year before school begins), families are visited by their Home Tutor and learn skills to help get their child ready for school.
In the second HIPPY year (when the child starts school), parents learn more from their Home Tutor about how to support their children’s learning and development both at school and at home.
The HIPPY program is offered by Anglicare NSW South, West and ACT.
