Curriculum

Our Curriculum

     We wanted to give our parents some information about High/Scope which is the curriculum we are modeling in each of our classrooms.  High/Scope's educational approach emphasizes “active participatory learning.”  Active learning means students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children’s interests and choices are at the heart of our High/Scope program. They construct their own knowledge through interactions with the world and the people around them. Children take the first step in the learning process by making choices and following through on their plans and decisions. Caregivers and parents offer physical, emotional, and intellectual support. In active learning settings, adults expand children’s thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. High/Scope assesses children’s development with comprehensive observations rather than narrow tests, using the Preschool Child Observation Record (COR) and Infant/Toddler Child Observation Record (COR). Observing a broad range of behaviors over several weeks or months gives us a more accurate picture of children’s true capabilities than tests administered in one-time sessions. Using the content areas as a framework, teachers record daily anecdotes describing what children do and say. Two times a year, we review these anecdotes and rate each child at the highest level he or she has demonstrated so far on 30 items for preschool and 28 for infants/toddlers in six areas of development: initiative, social relations, creative representation, movement and music, language and literacy, and logic and mathematics. Children’s COR scores help teachers design learning opportunities tailored to their level of development. The COR is also used to explain children’s progress to parents during conferences. Instead of only giving parents abstract scores, teachers share anecdotes illustrating what their children are doing now and how they will continue to grow.
