We believe that HighScope Curriculum teaches children the foundation to be successful in their early learning years. The HighScope Curriculum is designed to prove a rich academic foundation while teaching independence, decision making, cooperation, creativity and problem solving in young children.
Lets take a look at how the HighScope Curriculum works:
How We Teach:
Teachers begin children’s interest in learning by creating an environment that encourages them to explore learning materials and interact with adults. We focus on being there for early learners as they make decisions, build academic skills, develop socially and emotionally, and become part of a classroom community.
Active learning is the core to the HighScope Curriculum. Active learning truly is the whole foundation of young children gaining knowledge through their natural play and interactions with the environment, activities, events, and people.
To create a predictable and active learning environment, teachers set up their classroom with many open-ended materials that symbolize children’s home, culture, and language. The room is very organized and labeled to promote independence and encourage children to carry out their intentions while at school!
A consistent routine for the day provides a balanced variety of experiences and learning opportunities. Children engage in both individual and social play, participate in small- and large-group activities, help with cleanup, talk with their friends and teachers during meals, develop self-care skills, and exercise their small and large muscles during all parts of the day. The most important task of the daily routine is the plan-do-review sequence, in which children make decisions about what they will do, carry out their ideas, and reflect upon their activities with other people. These higher-level thinking skills are connected to the development of important functions, which are needed to be successful in school and life.
Overall, the HighScope Curriculum has been a huge success and helps develop children in their young years!
