HIPPY and PAT are home visiting programs that work directly with parents to help them become their child’s “first teacher”. One of the requirements of both programs is to hold monthly group meetings/connections to offer additional assistance in meeting the needs of the parents and children. During this time the children are worked with on a variety of skills. STEAM activities will allow us to reinforce skills already being taught in the homes through HIPPY and PAT, thus better preparing our children for their future academic success. Our focus is that childen learn through play naturally. Having these activities will allows us to be proactive in their learning by providing the basics of what they will need in their future.
