You are invited to a presentation by Deborah Bell of Hippy Canada, an organization that promotes effective early childhood development programs, particularly for youngsters experiencing social and economic inequalities and exclusion. The Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program was developed in Israel in 1969 as an evidence-based, community-driven response specifically designed for the literacy needs of families living in poverty that impacts on children’s school readiness skills. HIPPY recognizes the parent as the child’s first and best teacher and empowers them with a fun, flexible, and easy-to-follow format that helps them teach their children and prepare them for the demands of primary school (http://www.hippycanada.ca/home.php).
