HighScope® Children’s Program

boy enjoys playing with coloursThe Children’s Program serves 44 children ranging in ages from 2-5 years in three on site classrooms.

It uses the HighScope® curriculum, a quality approach based on over 40 years of research. The curriculum fosters and scaffolds children’s developmentally appropriate experiences in self-help, motor, cognition, communication skills, problem solving, relations with peers and adults, and resolving conflicts.

It embraces the “Continuity of Care” philosophy, which involves HighScope® certified educators staying with their children and families for the duration of their enrollment.

This family approach strengthens and solidifies the educator-parent-child relationship and cultivates a sense of security, belonging and empowerment.

Parents spend two days a month with their children in the classroom to improve their own parenting skills, their parent-child relationships, and to better understand their child’s development and needs.boy playing

The Children’s Program works closely with the community to provide experiences and links to their outside world.
