The HIPPY curriculum is aligned with the TEA guidelines for PreK and Kindergarten, and has been highlighted in the Introduction of the PreK Guidelines as a program that helps “families develop language and pre-literacy skills in their young children.

Research demonstrates that an overwhelming percentage of HIPPY students are deemed ”ready for school” by their Kindergarten teacher when compared to their non-HIPPY peers.

When compared to economically disadvantaged students statewide, HIPPY children performed better in both TAKS Reading and TAKS Math testing.
