Our Curriculum

Physical development & Health Teachers and students are active partners in shaping the educational experience. This partnership allows children the opportunity to find out how the world works through their direct experience with people, objects, materials, events, and ideas.

The curriculum emphasizes adult-child interaction, a carefully designed learning environment, and a plan-do-review process. This process strengthens initiative, self-reliance, supports critical thinking and language development in children. Our teachers observe and record activities while supporting each child’s individual learning process.

High Scope

High Scope is an educational approach in which children and adults share responsibility for learning. High Scope promotes curiosity, creativity, persistence, decision making and problem solving in young children.

Active learning is the cornerstone of the High Scope approach. Play is the way children learn. In an active learning setting children choose activities and materials that interest them, manipulate materials in their own ways, use language to describe their intentions and actions, and receive adult support during their play.

Research shows that nurturing adult child interactions help children achieve higher levels of academic achievement. Children who experience positive adult child interactions also develop enhanced pro-social skills and increased self-esteem. In the High/Scope curriculum the role of the teacher is to support and extend the children’s learning by observing and listening, asking appropriate question and by scaffolding learning experiences.
