PhilosophyThe program will focus upon individual success, provide child initiated learning experiences, and promote growth in cognitive, physical, social and emotional areas such as are found in the High Scope Early Childhood approach.
Parents and teachers will be involved in a cooperative effort meet the program goals as students construct their own understanding of the world through active involvement with materials, people, and ideas. The adult’s role will be to facilitate this process by creating opportunities for children to undertake self-planned activities and to reflect on those activities.
Adults will further support children by providing appropriate materials, planned spaces, and a consistent daily routine. Adults will understand each child’s development status and provide direct and appropriate support and extension of their activities based on developmentally appropriate key experiences.
