Brianna's list, Dallas HIPPY

Brianna asked her mom to write "Angel" and then she added her own list of words she knows. Reading together, making lists, counting -- these are the things our HIPPY parents do with their children every day. And, these activities are what ensures that students are ready for success in school. 

Recently the Office of the President unveiled their Birth Through Kindergarten Plan, called "Early Education for All Americans".  It includes home visiting!  In his State of the Union Address, on February 12, 2013, the President shared "In states that make it a priority to educate our youngest children…studies show students grow up more likely to read and do math at grade level, graduate high school, hold a job, form more stable families of their own.  We know this works.  So let’s do what works and make sure none of our children start the race of life already behind.”

So proud of the hard work our coordinators, home visitors, and parents do to make sure that every child we work with is on the right track on the race of life!

I agree. Back home in India, kids start school when we turn 3. And yes, we start ABC and math that early.
