Our Curriculum

Engage. Play. Encourage.

Research-based. Child-focused.

We know the tools that give your children the best opportunity at long-term success.

The HighScope Curriculum uses active participatory learning and the plan-do-review process to achieve powerful outcomes.

HighScope not only helps young children excel in literacy and cognitive learning but also to develop the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life.

Toddler Curriculum

The Toddler curriculum uses a carefully designed process of learning
through discovery called active participatory learning. During active
learning, toddlers learn about the world around them by exploring
and playing.

The HighScope Toddler Curriculum is a comprehensive model that
addresses all areas of development through six content areas and 42 key developmental indicators (KDIs) — the skills and behaviors at each stage of development that pave the way for school and adult success. Each KDI is connected to and reinforced by scaffolding strategies to support and gently extend children’s learning.

Preschool Curriculum

Our Preschool Curriculum addresses all areas of development through eight content areas and 58 key developmental indicators (KDIs).

While learning in these areas prepares children for school, HighScope goes beyond traditional academic subjects by promoting independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, creativity, and problem-solving.
