Our Curriculum
The High Scope Curriculum is when the children actively participate in discovering objects, events, and ideas. High Scope Curriculum builds essential school-readiness skills in which the children and teachers/adults share responsibility for learning. The children also develop their cognitive skills, language, literacy, communication skills, social/emotional skills, physical development, health, and well-being.
