Early childhood education. The ultimate opportunity.

HighScope Educational Research Foundation is an independent nonprofit research, development, training, and public outreach organization with headquarters in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Our focus is on early childhood education and the professional development of those that are in the field.

Our mission is big, but it is clear: to change the trajectory of the world, one child at a time. This takes passionate people, ready to roll up their sleeves. It takes driven educators who truly want to make a difference. It takes visionary leaders, dedicated to the long view. Our research has shown the way. Our curriculum has proven it in practice. And our results have shown the extraordinary impact, long into the future. How do we do it? We engage. We play. We encourage. We teach the teachers. And then we study the results day to day and decade to decade. 

We invite you to join us.
