HIPPY Halton

HIPPY is a free program that serves qualified families in Oakville, Milton, and Burlington.

 

We send Home Visitors into the homes of qualified families and teach the parents how to prepare their children for success in Kindergarten and beyond.

 

The 30-week program is based on children's literature, with activity booklets and materials provided by HIPPY Halton

HIPPY Children

HIPPY children are prepared, confident learners and excited to enter school and begin kindergarten.

HIPPY Home Visitors

Home Visitors act as peer mentors to HIPPY Parents, strengthening their English literacy skills. They build a resume and Canadian work history while earning a Living Wage. 

HIPPY Parents

HIPPY Parents strengthen relationships with their children, their English literacy skills, and their understanding of schools’ expectations. Knowledge of the community, its resources and opportunities are developed.
