NBY delivers the HIPPY early childhood development program which supports families with young children.

HIPPY is a two year early childhood learning program that works with families of children aged 3 and 4 years. HIPPY empowers families to take an active role in their children’s education, development and overall wellbeing by building upon family strengths to provide children with the necessary skills and confidence to begin school.

HIPPY Tutors support parents with weekly or fortnightly visits using structured materials and activities in the home or at a preferred location. Monthly Group Meetings allow families time to prepare resources that support activity packs and provide an opportunity for parents to discuss the program in a fun and interactive environment.
