Early Years Support Program and HIPPY

Wunan Foundation delivers programs designed to assist parents in their important role as their child’s first educators. These programs support parents to help their young children develop healthy learning habits before entering school. 

Wunan manages the Child & Parent Centres (CPCs) in Kununurra and Halls Creek in partnership with the WA Department of Education. Research shows that 90 percent of a child’s brain develops by the age of three. So the experiences they have during this time impact on their success at school and in later life. 

Child & Parent Centres support families as they begin to lay the foundations for their children’s development and learning habits. The Kununurra & Halls Creek CPCs offer a range of activities for children and families, including playgroups and school holiday programs for children, health programs in partnership with local organisations, pick up and drop off services, cultural programs and performances, and KindiLink in partnership with local schools. These activities provide opportunities for families and individuals to engage with one another, learn new skills, and access resources that support their health and well-being.  

Wunan's HIPPY program is a comprehensive and supportive initiative aimed at providing young children with the best possible start in life. The program is designed for families with preschool-aged children and provides a two-year, home-based curriculum that works with parents to promote early childhood learning and development. With a focus on language, listening skills, and concentration, HIPPY helps children develop essential skills that are essential for success in school and beyond. By encouraging a love of learning, building self-esteem and confidence, HIPPY sets children on a path to lifelong academic and personal success.
