Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters(HIPPY) is a is a 3-year (90 week) parent involvement and school readiness program in which learning and play go hand in hand. Using a structured curriculum, parents encourage their children to recognize shapes and colors, tell stories, follow directions, solve logical problems and acquire other school readiness skills.

What began as a small pilot program 40 years ago in Israel has grown into an international program in over 10 countries that remove the barriers to education such as poverty. Through its message of school readines and parent involvement HIPPY has changed the lives of countless of families. Join us today in helping change the state of Texas.
