On October 11th, BronxWorks and the National Council of Jewish Women (NCJW) marked the 20th anniversary of its Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program.

HIPPY is a home-based early childhood development and parent education program that serves mostly immigrant parents.  It gives parents the tools to be their children’s first teachers and helps prepare 3-5 year olds for success in kindergarten and beyond.

The program offers structured activities that give parents the confidence to engage their children in educational activities, removing language and education barriers.  Books and other materials are provided for free.

The BronxWorks HIPPY program is supported by the National Council of Jewish Women – New York Section.

Karol Todrys, NCJW-NYS Co-President; Dr. Miriam Westheimer; and Carolyn McLaughlin, BronxWorks Executive Director

Dr. Miriam Westheimer, the director of HIPPY International, was the keynote speaker at the celebration.
