Supporting Parents of Preschoolers – Podcast Episode 73 | Classnotes Podcast 73
Classnotes Podcast (May 25, 2010) Children begin learning at birth, and all children, regardless of income, ethnicity or parent education, need effective early learning experiences. The Texas IDRA PIRC is proud to be working with HIPPY in Texas to support families and their children’s learning. HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters) is a three-year (90-week) parent involvement and school readiness program in which learning and play go hand-in-hand. It helps parents encourage their children to recognize shapes and colors, tell stories, follow directions, solve logical problems and acquire other school readiness skills.
Frances Guzmán, M.Ed., an IDRA education associate, describes how HIPPY prepares young children for the classroom and strengthens connections between parents and their children’s school.
