The Australian Government is inviting the Brotherhood of St Laurence via a restricted process to apply to deliver services under the Families and Children program – Children and Parenting Support (CaPS) – HIPPY from 2022–23 to 2026–27. The program is to be delivered in 100 communities across Australia including 50 Indigenous focused communities.
HIPPY is an early intervention and prevention program that builds the confidence and skills of parents and carers to be their child’s first teacher to create a positive learning environment in the home and helps families transition their child into school.
The objectives of the HIPPY activity are:
- for children, the HIPPY activities are designed to develop a child’s interest in learning and enable them to be ready for school by recalibrating the home learning environment
- building parents’ self-efficacy and improve parenting practices and family functioning – parents and carers use the HIPPY activities to interact with their child, support their education, and learn more about being their child’s first teacher
- for tutors that participate in HIPPY’s professional development program, Pathways to Possibilities, they gain confidence and skills to pursue other employment and/or courses of study
- to build community capacity to support families’ transitioning their children to school.
