Let's Change the World.

How do you provide care for your youngest while nurturing their growth and development? We know.

The curriculum you choose and how you implement it determine the quality of care for your infants and toddlers. Choosing a curriculum that fits the needs of your children, their families, and, of course, you, is an important decision that requires careful consideration.

Research-based and child-focused, the HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum uses a carefully designed process of learning through discovery called active participatory learning. During active learning, infants and toddlers learn about the world around them by exploring and playing.

The HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum is a comprehensive model that addresses all areas of development through six content areas and 42 key developmental indicators (KDIs) — the skills and behaviors at each stage of development that pave the way for school and adult success. Each KDI is connected to and reinforced by scaffolding strategies to support and gently extend children's learning.
