Study Participants

Participants were recruited from families with students enrolled in pre-kindergarten at the agency providing HIPPY. Interested families were randomly assigned to intervention (n = 70) and comparison groups (n = 87). Study participants in the intervention group were mostly African American and Latino; 32 percent of intervention families were African American, 32 percent were Latino, and 13 percent were White. In the comparison group, 20 percent of families were African American, 29 percent were Latino, and 30 percent were White. More families reported public assistance benefits as their main source of income in the intervention group (34 percent) than in the comparison group (20 percent). At baseline, the children's average age was 55 months.

Setting

All study participants were enrolled in a pre-kindergarten program offered by a public early childhood center.
