This webpage describes the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters program (HIPPY), a home-based early intervention program that helps parents teach skills important to school readiness and success to their 3 to 5-year-old children. This free service is delivered by HIPPY home visitors who live in targeted high-need communities. It explains that all HIPPY programs around the world follow the HIPPY model: a developmentally appropriate curriculum, role play as the method of teaching, a staff composed of home visitors from the community and supervised by a professional coordinator, and home visits interspersed with group meetings as the delivery methods. It notes that a model HIPPY site serves up to 180 children with one coordinator and 12-18 part-time home visitors. Additional links provide information on each of these components of the model.
