A Model of Active Learning
The HighScope Demonstration Preschool, in Ypsilanti, MI, serves families in the local community, providing high-quality preschool education to children ages 3 to 5. With an emphasis on active participatory learning, the acclaimed HighScope Preschool Curriculum is the foundation for children's activities and daily routine. Central to the HighScope approach are children's interests and choices, which adults support by playing an active and intentional role in guiding and extending children's learning.
The HighScope Curriculum has been used in early childhood settings around the world since 1962 and its success in helping children develop to their full potential has been validated through years of research. The mission of the Demonstration Preschool is to demonstrate the HighScope educational approach and its application with children and families of diverse backgrounds.
