Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters — HIPPY — empowers parents as primary educators of their children and fosters parent involvement to maximize the chances of successful early-learning experiences.

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters is an evidence-based, intervention program that helps parents prepare their 2, 3, and 4-year-old children for success in school and beyond.

Home visitors, who are trained in the HIPPY curriculum, visit the home weekly to role-play the lessons. Through activity packets and storybooks, HIPPY brings literacy into the home. HIPPY materials are available in Spanish and English.

Parents work with their children daily, reading books and performing related activities to strengthen their children's cognitive, literacy, social-emotional, and physical development. The program teaches basic concepts that include:

  • Language Development
  • Problem Solving
  • Logical Thinking
  • Creativity
  • Self Concept

There are 30 weeks in the program year, September through May. Jeffco HIPPY follows the Jeffco Schools’ calendar. The enrollment window is September through December. Enrichment meetings are held monthly to connect parents with community resources and support the home-school connection.

Jeffco HIPPY is accredited by HIPPY USA.


HIPPY partners with Jefferson County families with children ages 2-4, particularly those most at risk because of poverty, limited education, or English proficiency.
