Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is an evidenced-based program that works with families in the home to support parents in their critical role as their child's first and most important teacher.
HIPPY Arkansas strengthens communities and families by empowering parents to actively prepare their children for success in school. Parents are provided with a set of carefully developed curriculum, books and materials designed to strengthen their children's cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional, and physical development.
HIPPY Arkansas began as a pilot project in 1986, serving four sites in Arkansas. Today, HIPPY Arkansas is a department of Arkansas Children’s Hospital and housed within the Arkansas Home Visiting Network. HIPPY Arkansas provides training and technical support services to 39 independent programs, serving 60 counties across the state, that utilize the HIPPY model to support parents in nurturing their children's intellectual, social and physical development.
