Overview of High Scope Curriculum

At HILC we use the High Scope curriculum in all of our classrooms. High Scope is grounded in current development theory, research and best practices for young children. The curriculum is evidenced based and uses the children’s own interest as an integral aspect of the day to day learning. We believe you are your child’s first teacher. As such, we will partner/collaborate with you to offer your child what he/she needs to grow, develop and flourish. Active learning is the cornerstone of the High Scope curriculum. Children learn best and gain knowledge by being involved in natural play and interactions with others and their world. We achieve this in all classrooms by providing age appropriate experiences, materials and interactions that interest the children.

Infants and Toddlers (birth to age three)

The learning is focused on 6 content areas: Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Health and Development, Communication, Language and Literacy, Cognitive Development and Creative Arts. The content areas are divided in to 42 key developmental indictors (KDIs) which are aligned with national and state early learning guidelines as well as Head Start early Learning Outcomes Framework. Each KDI is connected to and reinforced by scaffolding strategies (learning building upon previous knowledge and/or experiences of the child) The Key Developmental Indicators provide the teachers with a framework of child development and supports them in planning/choosing age appropriate interactions and experiences/activities. Further, it assists the teachers to understand what the child is saying and doing along a developmental continuum. It helps the teacher maintain realistic expectations for individual children as they grow and develop. Lastly, understanding of the KDIs allows teachers to be more intentional and knowledgeable in their daily planning for each child and the class.

Preschool (Three to Five)

The learning is focused on 6 content areas: Approaches to Learning, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Health and Development, Communication, Language and Literacy, Cognitive Development and Creative Arts. The content areas are divided in to 58 key developmental indictors (KDIs) which are aligned with national and state early learning guidelines as well as Head Start early Learning Outcomes Framework.

What Our Families are Saying

“The staff in the infant room at Heartfelt Impressions is one of a kind. They make my daughter feel like she’s right at home. They read to her, interact with her through music and play, and love her as if she was their own. When I leave her in the morning, I know she is in the best of hands and that she is going to have an amazing day.”
“We couldn’t be happier about the choice we made to send our infant and 4-year-old daughters to Heartfelt Impressions!”
“We are so happy with our experience at Heartfelt Impressions. We researched 25 local child care providers, touring 8. What sold us on Heartfelt was that they interact with the babies on a very personal level, as if each is their own.”
