The MPHS HIPPY Programme is underway for the year!
Our new families are into their third week of the programme and already many have commented on what a difference it’s made having that one on one quality time with their preschool child :
“I am amazed at how much enthusiasm my son has shown towards the HIPPY activities. Even his kindy teachers have commented on how he is more attentive now…”
We have a group of families starting the second year of the programme as well, and many of these children recently started school excited and ready to learn! They have settled into school well and are continuing doing their daily 15 minutes of HIPPY with their parents at home as well. HIPPY is a two-year transition to school programme so it continues through the first 6-12 months after a child starts school.
“HIPPY has helped develop my child’s confidence in learning. It is bonding time for me and my daughter and has prepared her well for primary school.”
There are still a few places available on the programme for this year, so if your child is between 3 ½ and 4 ½ years of age, contact us now, so you don’t miss out.
Phone or text Gaylene: 8384820 / 021 2328149 or call into HUB West.
Did you know about our community play group? We meet every Tuesday and Thursday mornings 9.30am – 12 noon.
Our play group is a mixture of play time, mat time where we read stories that the children choose followed by some songs. Our lovely volunteers run and organise the programmes. We have a lovely group of parents and grandparents who enjoy sharing a coffee with each other. Bring morning tea and come along for the morning! We ask that you do not bring any nut products as some children have nut allergies. The cost for play group is a gold coin donation per family.
