Home Interaction Programme for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY)
HIPPY is an educational programme where parents in their homes are helped to teach their three and a half year olds basic reading, math and problem solving skills that will help them to be more prepared for when they start school.
Helping your whanau/family in your own home makes a big difference to how they will learn in school. HIPPY children feel good about themselves and love learning. Click here from more information.
