HIPPY

HIPPY partners with parents in Pointe Coupee Parish to prepare their children for success in school, particularly those most at risk because of poverty, limited education and English proficiency. 

 

HIPPY is an evidenced-based family support model that works directly with parents in their homes to give them books, activities and skills needed for them to take responsibility for preparing their children for school. Peer parent educators deliver 30 weeks of high quality school readiness curriculum activities and books directly to parents, who then work each day with their own three, four and five year old children.
