Home Interaction Program for Parents and Youngsters (HIPPY) is a two year home based early childhood parenting and enrichment program for pre-school aged children and their parents/carers. Home tutors schedule regular weekly or fortnightly visits with parents to work through the program activities in the family's home. Parents are also encouraged to participate in regular parent group meetings. The program activities are designed to be integrated into the daily life of the family.

The HIPPY approach develops the foundations for learning in the home during children's crucial early years. HIPPY fosters social inclusion, contributes to successful school participation and offers parents, a supported pathway to employment, training and local level community leadership. HIPPY seeks to build a sense of belonging for families and children and actively equip parents to support their children and other parents.
