Preschool Curricula

1.  HighScope Curriculum


HighScope is the research-based educational approach used in the preschool classroom. It focuses on each child's social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development by offering concrete, hands-on activities for the child to explore. High/Scope supports and encourages the development of independence, responsibility, and confidence, all of which are imperative for the child's success in school. Skills are developed through active involvement with people, materials, events, and ideas.


2.  "Growing Readers" Early Literacy Curriculum


Engages young children in four key areas of early literacy learning:

  • Comprehension
  • Phonological awareness
  • Alphabetic principle
  • Concepts about print

The program focuses on these four aspects of early literacy because of the strong evidence that young children's knowledge of these concepts is a solid predictor of their reading achievement in later years. 


3.  "Numbers Plus" Early Math curriculum


Actively engages young children with materials and ideas, Numbers Plus builds on the latest knowledge from research and practice about early mathematics learning and how adults support it. Aligned with the standards of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the activities in Numbers Plus are divided into five content areas:

  • Number Sense and Operations
  • Geometry
  • Measurement
  • Algebra
  • Data Analysis
