Helping parents prep kids for kindergarten
HIPPY Britannia Community Centre
Not everyone can afford pre-school for their children. HIPPY, which stands for Home Instruction for Parents of Pre-School Youngsters, helps teach parents how to prepare their young children for school.
Vancouver Foundation was one of the first to fund this school readiness program for low-income and immigrant families. It’s based on the premise that the parent is the first and best educator of their children, and that it is important for children to be prepared when they start kindergarten.
