How we use HighScope
Our teaching practices at A Head Start have been guided by aspects of the HighScope curriculum approach since 2007. HighScope, based on over 45 years of scientific research, is play based, child-centred and has crucial intentional teaching strategies that our teachers and educators implement each day. By educators consistently using the same teaching strategies from babies to preschool ensures learning is continuous as children transition through each age group.
HighScope provides strategies for children’s social and emotional development as a high priority where encouragement and conflict resolution are focal points. HighScope’s core intellectual learning is STEAM based including Science, Technology, Engineering/construction, performing and visual Arts, and Mathematics, and this seamlessly flows into the preparatory school curriculum.
