The HighScope Preschool Curriculum is based on the principles of active learning and support of a child's positive interactions with adults and peers. It is a research-based curriculum which uses a comprehensive model to address all areas of development through eight content areas:
- Approaches to Learning
- Social and Emotional Development
- Physical Development and Health
- Language, Literacy and Communication
- Creative Arts
- Science and Technology
- Social Studies
While learning in these content areas prepares children for later schooling, HighScope takes the learning process beyond traditional academic subjects by applying methods that promote independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving in young children.
All teachers are dual certified by the State of NJ as a P-3 teacher and teacher of students with disabilities. Our school psychologist and school social worker are part of our Child Study Team. For students with IEPs, we have two speech therapists, and offer Occupational Therapy & Physical Therapy. In addition, we have our own on-site nurse.
The Community YMCA’s Child Achievement Center provides on-site before and after care services to students for an additional fee. Click here for more information.
