Q: Are you closed for holidays or in-services for staff?
A: We are closed for eight holidays and two in-service days: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and the day after, and two days at Christmas.
The HighScope curriculum is consistent with the best practices recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The curriculum integrates all aspects of child and youth development. Using research-validated strategies, this approach enhances each young person’s growth in the foundations of academics as well as in social-emotional, physical, and creative areas. We also teach math, science, and social studies with all our students. Every day is filled with developmentally appropriate activities, songs, rhymes, stories, books, and tools for assessing your child’s development. We use the activities that the children do each day to observe where they are developmentally and monitor their growth. We assess development at least twice each year and encourage Parent-Teacher Conferences with each assessment to discuss and compare notes as to how your child is progressing. We use these opportunities to talk and discover new ways to encourage, foster, and feed your child’s passion for learning.
The Toddler Program is designed to encourage good learning habits and develop skills in language, motor control, social development, dealing with confrontation constructively, showing respect, and gaining a positive attitude toward a school environment.
The HighScope Preschool Curriculum extends into our Preschool Program. It’s built around 58 developmental milestones in eight curriculum content areas that are aligned with state educational standards. The developmental milestones are critical in defining what we teach, how we provide education, teaching practices, the classroom environment, routine, and interactions.
Preschool classrooms are carefully planned with learning in mind. They are conducive to our daily routine and allow students to be secure and self-reliant.
