We Use the HighScope Curriculum® for Infants
The HighScope Infant Curriculum is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum designed to support our youngest learners so they feel confident to learn, explore, and exercise their creative imagination through purposeful play. We provide responsive individual routines and support positive attachment relationships, which produces an early learning environment where all children can thrive.
The HighScope Approach
Infants need to feel safe and supported so they can explore and discover the world around them. Our teachers focus on developing supportive, trusting relationships with each child as well as providing an environment that encourages infants to engage in experiences designed to support their optimal development.
HighScope Curriculum Content Areas
Learning is focused on six content areas: Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development and Health, Communication, Language, and Literacy, Cognitive Development, and Creative Arts.
Key Developmental Indicators
The framework for understanding and supporting infants’ learning is based on 42 key developmental indicators (KDIs), which are aligned with national and state early learning guidelines.
The HighScope Difference
We value and respect parents as their children’s first teachers. That’s why our teachers partner with you in learning everything they can about your child to better care for their needs and plan for their development. As a result, our programs create a strong bond between child, parent, and teacher.
First Look Faith-Based Curriculum
We support children’s spiritual development with our First Look Curriculum, which is based on 3 foundational principles: God made me, God loves me, and Jesus wants to be my friend forever. Our faith-based curriculum is taught through developmentally appropriate experiences.
