HIPPY Conecuh is a home visiting program that focuses on parent-involved and parent -directed early learning. HIPPY services are offered to parents, who then work with their 2 year old-through 4 year old. HIPPY helps parents prepare their children for success in school and beyond. HIPPY supports parents as their children’s first teacher by providing them tools, skills, and confidence to teach their young children at home.
HIPPY is a 30 week program of activities, with a Parent Educator visiting the home once per week. Each week the Parent Educator will deliver and role play with the parent one curriculum packet. The curriculum has the domains, Literacy, Language, Science, and Math. All props and supplies are provided for each family. A group meeting (2 Hours) is held every six weeks that will cover an adult educational program and a program for the children. Everyone is served dinner due to the lateness of the meeting. The meetings are held at a community building outside of the Conecuh County Extension Office.
