what we believe

HIPPY USA believes that every child deserves a quality preschool education and that parents want the best for their children.  Early education is key to a child's brighter future, and parents are their child's first teacher.  

what we teach

Our peer home visitors deliver top-quality curriculum to parents of 2 -5 year-olds for 30 weeks for 1 hour each week.  Parents then use HIPPY resources and new skills to teach their children for 20 minutes each day.  

what we know

Over 20 years of research conducted in the United States and countries around the world have proven that the HIPPY Model is effective in improving school readiness, parent involvement, school attendance and overall academic performance of children that complete the program.

why HIPPY 

Our work focuses on the power of parents and caregivers to positively affect early brain development and school readiness for children ages 2-5.  Families report increased positive interaction with their kids and an increased focus on literacy from receiving free HIPPY books each year to build their child's home library.  HIPPY is one of the original 7 research-based home visiting programs, recognized for its positive outcomes for school readiness and parent engagement.
