Dawson HIPPY Program

Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters

HIPPY is a parent involvement program for 3,4 and some 5 year old children. HIPPY homebased educators meet with the parent or caregiver once a week, for 30 weeks, to role-play the age based curriculum with the adult in the home. The parent then spends approximately 15 minutes each day going over the activites and storybook with the child. Monthly group meetings are also conducted.

Mission: Empowers the parents to become the child's first and most important teacher while helping prepare them for their educational success.

We made our version of hopscotch. It doesn’t have to be perfect or traditional. Brenson did this over and over again and it even included parents and grandparents participation.

“These unprecedented times call for new and creative ways to support young parents and children, and our hope is that these tips help parents feel less stressed while restoring some semblance of normalcy for their young families,” says Tammi Fleming, senior associate with Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Free lunches to those without jobs.

A good resource.

[04/06/20]   Parents please tune in to PBS ( channel 2) Monday -Friday from 8:00-9:00 am for Preschool Alternative Methods of Instruction or AMI lessons. This is a great resource to include with your daily HIPPY lessons. I encourage you to message pictures of your child completing their Hippy activities to our HIPPY page. I will post them throughout the week. Let’s continue to shelter in place and take our necessary precautions to keep this virus from spreading. Please contact your home visitor for any immediate needs. We are always here for you!

[03/16/20]   Dear parents,
During this two week break from home visits, I would like to encourage every family to continue HIPPY activities with your child. This is the perfect time to review old lessons, read your HIPPY books along with other books you have. Ask questions about the books your reading. Have the child read the book back to you. Work on spelling and writing their name. Paint, color, count. Let them help you prepare meals. Turn off the TV and play games with your family. If you have dominos or cards, they can be used to to learn numbers and counting. Choose a letter a day and find those items around the house that begin with the letter. Talk about
the letter, sound the letter out, write the letter. Make play dough. Uses your scissors. Children need to be active as well. Get moving with your child. Review the gross motor activities you and your child did this year. Most of all, embrace these days home with your child. So much love and learning will take place. Please contact HIPPY at 501-653-5611 if you have any questions. We will keep you notified of HIPPY updates as they become available.

The Dawson HIPPY Program, Bryant and Poyen will be closed until March 30th. The field trip March 18th has also been cancelled. Be diligent with hand washing and stay home if you or your family members get sick. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread of the Coronavirus in our communities.

Feltz Chiropractic - Dr. Kayla Feltz

Tonight we’re talking about GRAPES! 🍇It’s a well known fact that whole grapes are a dangerous choking hazard for babies, toddlers and young children!

The size and shape of grapes means that they can completely plug a child's airway. The tight seal produced by the grape's smooth surface makes them difficult to dislodge with standard first aid techniques.

Young children are particularly vulnerable to choking on a grape because:
• They don't have a full set of teeth and are still learning to chew properly.
• Their swallow reflex is still developing.
• Their airway is very small.

This handy image shows just how to slice them so that they are safe to eat - slice in half lengthways and ideally into quarters. NEVER in half widthways!

Same goes for olives, cherry tomatoes and large blueberries! Please help us raise awareness 💚

Open registration for the 2020-2021 HIPPY program year. Call to reserve your spot today. 501-653-5611

[02/17/20]   The Dawson HIPPY Programs - Bryant and Poyen will be going to the Museum of Science and Discovery in Little Rock March 18th at 9:50a.m. HIPPY children and parents will have free admission.

A Special thank you to the Argenta Branch Library for hosting story time today. The trolley ride through Little Rock was a new experience for many of us. We even made a trip to Hurts Donuts!
