The HighScope Curriculum was designed as a result of extensive research that supports our belief that children learn best when they participate actively in the learning process. They discover things through direct experience with people, objects, events, and ideas.
Teachers are as active and involved as children in the classroom. They thoughtfully provide materials, plan activities, and talk with children in ways that both support and challenge what children are observing and thinking. Activities are both child-initiated — built upon children's natural curiosity — and developmentally appropriate, that is, matched to children's current and emerging abilities. ~HighScope
Teachers provide both small group and large group learning opportunities throughout the day. Lessons are created with consideration to children's ages and developmental levels. Teachers can adapt lessons based on individual children's needs.
The Preschool is staffed by professional and caring teachers, most with their Bachelor's degree and some working on their Master's degree. Overall, the teachers have many years of collective experience in early childhood development. Teachers are required to continue their on-going education through Keystone STARS. In addition, all teachers have been trained in CPR, Blood Borne Pathogens, AED, and First Aid for the safety of all children attending. Each new hire must have a criminal child abuse background check, as well as an FBI clearance.
We are an equal opportunity care provider.
