The Highscope Experience

Highscope promotes "Active Learning" and active participation from children. This means children have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children's interests and choices are at the heart of HighScope programs. The HighScope program develops in children a broad range of skills, including:

• communication skills,

• interpersonal skills,

• and problem-solving skills

that are essential for successful living in a rapidly changing society. The Highscope Curriculum encourages initiative by providing children with materials, equipment, and time to pursue activities they choose. Let us help you implement Highscope into your child care program.
