New Program for Parents of Preschool Children - HIPPY Program - Starting this Fall
The HIPPY program (Home Instruction for Parents Of Preschool Youngsters)
is a new program, offered at the Regina Immigrant Women Centre.
This program provides a free preschool program to newcomer families (Permanent Residents and Refugees), especially those living in social isolation and those who cannot afford preschool.
Preschool programs are for children aged 3-4 years old and are meant to help prepare the child for a successful entry into formal school (kindergarten).
Participating in the HIPPY Program will provide you with:
- skills to teach your preschool-aged child at home
- weekly in-home support and training from a Home Visitor (Regina Immigrant Women Centre staff member)
- children's books and activity kits to teach your child at home
- monthly group meetings to meet other HIPPY parents in the community
- and much more...
Registration is ongoing for this program, which will begin in September, 2020.
