What makes HighScope the right choice for your program?

Research-Based for Over 50 Years

For more than 50 years, HighScope has provided a research-based, child-centered, and high-quality early learning curriculum that provides every child with the opportunity to realize their full potential, regardless of their circumstances.

Child Centered & Teacher Facilitated Curriculum

No scripts, worksheets, or themes to follow: The HighScope approach to early childhood education is intentionally designed to help teachers individualize instruction based on each child’s strengths, interests, and developmental needs, so all children enter school ready and eager to learn.

Whole-Child Approach

Educating the whole child is not a new trend at HighScope. Fifty years ago, we set out to take learning beyond traditional academic subjects to help children develop socially and emotionally. Our approach to early childhood education helps children gain control over their emotions and promotes planning, reflection, problem-solving, and emotional intelligence, all essential components of executive function and self-regulation skills—key predictors of success in school and in life.

Anti-Bias & Culturally Relevant Classrooms

Advancing racial equity has been at the center of HighScope’s mission since the landmark Perry Preschool Study conducted by HighScope’s founder David P. Weikart in partnership with Charles E. Beatty Sr., Michigan’s first Black principal. Today, we build on our history through our ongoing longitudinal research committed to racial equity, diversity, and inclusion in the field of early childhood education.

Family Engagement

The HighScope Curriculum is rooted in building trusted, authentic partnerships with parents and other family members to promote optimal learning and development for young children at school and at home.
