HighScope in Action

three boxesWe are inspired by the HighScope educational philosophy. The foundation of the HighScope approach is active learning and children’s initiative. Children’s critical thinking, self-confidence, and problem-solving abilities are developed through strong teacher-child interactions and a robust Plan-Do-Review process. 

1. Plan

  • Establishing a goal
  • Imagining actions
  • Expressing intentions
  • Shaping intentions into purpose

2. Do

  • Accomplishing a goal
  • Solving problems
  • Implementing intentions
  • Playing with a purpose

3. Review

  • Reflecting on experiences
  • Connecting plans, actions, and outcomes
  • Sharing meaningful experiences

Our teachers challenge and expand children’s thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. In all our programs, children engage in active learning—direct, hands-on experiences with people, materials, and ideas.
