HELP YOUR CHILD DEVELOP, BUILD RELATIONSHIPS AND ENCOURAGE THEIR LOVE OF LEARNING BY BECOMING A HIPPY FAMILY

HIPPY is a two-year home-based early childhood learning and parenting program delivered by trained Tutors. The Tutors empower and encourage families to extend their parenting skills and engage with their children by introducing reading, play and educational activities for 15 minutes per day.

To do HIPPY you must be: • Living in the Lismore or Goonellabah area; and • Caring for a child in the year before they start school (around four years old).  Tick the boxes that apply to you:

·         Do you hold a Health Care Card?

·         Is your child Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander?

·         Are you caring for an out-of-home child?

·         Are you receiving a form of government support payment?

·         Are you a single parent?

·         Is English not your first language?

Priority will be given to families who tick one or more of these boxes and who have not completed HIPPY previously.

Have you done HIPPY before?
