HIPPY is a home-based education program that teaches parents to be their preschool children's first teacher and prepare their 3-5 year-olds for school.

HIPPY parents are supported by easy-to-use activity packets that make learning and play fun, home visits by care professionals (home visitors) and group meetings.

Families must make a commitment to participate 30 weeks per year. Parents are provided with carefully developed materials, curriculum and books. The home visitors call upon the family every second week, bringing a new set of materials - usually a storybook and a packet of instructional materials. The home visitor and parent spend about one hour reviewing the materials, using role-play. All of the instructional materials are available in English and French. Parents spend 15 minutes each day doing activities with their child. Every other week, the HIPPY program offers a group meeting at community centres or schools, with enrichment activities for parents.
