Curriculum & Developmental Scales

Our Young Achievers educational curriculum for kids follows the HighScope philosophy. The foundation of the HighScope approach is active learning—in which students have direct, hands-on experiences with people, materials, and ideas—and a robust Plan-Do-Review process. Our digital lesson planning tool generates customized curriculum, based on teachers observing and assessing children, while children achieve milestones across 10 developmental scales:
