COR Advantage is a powerful tool that allows you to easily and automatically create reports on children’s development with just a few keystrokes. Child reports let you monitor progress in each of the COR Advantage domains, track growth across multiple time periods, and compare child scores to other standards, such as the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework. The best part? Once you’ve collected the anecdotes, COR Advantage does the rest. COR Advantage can help teachers identify, monitor, and document children’s holistic experiences starting at birth, as well as measure their growth in areas related to school readiness.


With the updated lesson planner in COR Advantage, putting meaningful data to work in your classroom activities is made easy. Simply edit the daily routine template to make it your own, then leverage embedded activities or create your own activities for each part of the day. The activity library is filled with strategies and activities, designed by the experts at HighScope, to drag and drop into your daily plan.

COR Advantage engages families through its online family network, family reports, and educational resources for families.

COR Advantage supports connections with family members by use of the family report, Your Child’s Developmental Profile, and the educational resources found on the family network. These resources allow teachers to share anecdotes and portfolio items, communicate upcoming events, and provide activities that families can do with their child at home. And all of these important features are available at no extra cost to programs that purchase COR Advantage. Improvements and upgrades to these features are included in your annual license.
