Early Childhood Curriculum — With a Difference
Choosing a preschool curriculum is an important decision. The curriculum you select, and how you implement it, affects the outcomes for children.
Beginning with the Perry Preschool Study, HighScope revolutionized early childhood education with a new approach to teaching and learning. Research based and child focused, the HighScope Curriculum uses a carefully designed process — called "active participatory learning" — to achieve powerful, positive outcomes.
As teachers, parents, and educational researchers have discovered, the HighScope Preschool Curriculum not only helps young children excel in language and cognitive learning but also promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving — the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life. This is what we mean by The HighScope Difference.
Our Resources and Training
We can help you make this difference in the lives of the children you serve. Through print, video, and online resources and a range of training options, we help teachers develop as skilled professionals. These offerings cover both how to teach — our teaching practices — and what to teach — our developmentally appropriate curriculum content. We also provide assessment tools for evaluating each child's progress or the program as a whole.
