Keiki O Ka ‘Aina offers Parents as Teachers, a nationally acclaimed parenting program for families of infants and toddlers. The PAT program is a home-based program for families that begins before the child is born the onset of learning and extends to age three.
Once your child has aged out of the PAT program they may qualify to begin the HIPPY program that offers a curriculum for ages 3-5 years old.
The HIPPY program offers home based education for three, four and five year old children working with parent(s) as their first teacher. The parent is provided with a set of carefully developed materials, curriculum and books designed to strengthen their child’s cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional and physical development. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate and builds on the children’s interest and maturing skills. HIPPY is primarily cognitive based focusing on language development, problem solving, logical thinking and perceptual skills. It will foster social-emotional and physical development in children and covers all the skills necessary to acquire reading and other literacy including phonemic awareness (phonics).
Both programs are FREE and will have lively monthly group meetings to make the experience a real pleasure for parents. Please call Keiki O Ka ‘Aina office if you have any questions that they can assist you
