1 OVERVIEW Infant-Toddler Curriculum A comprehensive approach to sensory-motor learning The HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum is grounded in over 50 years of research, including the most up-to-date information on brain development. HighScope s child-centered approach supports active exploration of the physical environment and provides a routine that is consistent enough to create a warm, reassuring setting, and flexible enough to respond to children s individual needs and interests. Active Learning Play is at the heart of the active learning curriculum. Children engage in active learning when they construct knowledge through interactions with materials, people, events, and ideas. Nurturing caregivers encourage infants and toddlers to explore and discover the world around them, helping to build executive functions such as memory and self-regulation. The Key Developmental Indicators (KDIs) define the important knowledge and skills infants and toddlers gain in six content areas: Approaches to Learning; Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development and Health; Communication, Language, and Literacy; Cognitive Development; and Creative Arts. Adult-Child Interactions Through continuity of care and supportive adult-child interactions, children establish strong attachments to a primary caregiver. Caregivers respond to individual needs and temperaments, play with children at their own physical and developmental level, and use a six-step approach to conflict resolution that allows children to express emotions safely, devise solutions, and become confident and capable problem solvers. Schedules and Routines Caregivers, in partnership with parents, create consistent yet flexible daily schedules and caregiving routines based on children s biological rhythms, to create an environment in which children feel loved and secure. Learning Environment To create a comfortable and stimulating sensory-motor learning environment, caregivers arrange and equip the active learning setting with ample space and diverse, open-ended materials that allow very young children to wiggle, roll, crawl, cruise, balance, toddle, walk, and climb. Observation Program practices and accountability are enhanced by HighScope s child and program assessment tools. COR Advantage is a validated observation measure that lets teachers record objective child anecdotes throughout the day, use these notes to make daily plans, and share information with families to extend children s learning at home. The Program Quality Assessment (PQA) is used to document and improve classroom teaching practices, relationships with families, staff professional learning, and administrative practices. 1

2 Family Engagement HighScope works with families as partners to support children s learning. Whether it s through parent meetings, learning activities to do at home, or using the Family Network, our online parent portal which shares regular information about the child s activities at school, HighScope has the tools to help you build strong connections with your families. Professional Learning HighScope offers a comprehensive system of professional learning. Its flexible, in-person and online training options ranging from one-day to multi-week courses are suitable for caregivers, teachers, teacher-trainers, and administrators. Diversity The HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum accommodates children from diverse backgrounds, including English language learners and those with special needs. It is aligned with state early learning standards and Early Head Start, and is used nationally and internationally in a wide variety of programs such as family child care, child care centers, Early Head Start, and home visiting programs. The HighScope Infant-Toddler Curriculum helps caregivers create an environment that is both nurturing and educating for even the youngest learners.

4 The HighScope Approach Designed and Research-Validated to Have a Lifelong Positive Effect The HighScope Curriculum is a high quality, developmentally based program, founded on a philosophy of active participatory learning, in which children and adults are engaged, interactive partners in the learning process. In HighScope programs, learning occurs in a play-based environment where children and adults work together to develop children s knowledge and skills in problem solving, decision making, and dependence, and to promote their sense of curiosity, persistence, and creativity. Educational materials and the learning environment build on children s interests, accommodate different developmental and ability levels, and reflect the diversity of children s family and community backgrounds. In HighScope programs, knowledgeable and intentional teachers scaffold early learning by supporting children s current level of understanding and gently extending their thinking and reasoning to the next level. There is a growing awareness among educators, policymakers, parents, and the general public that social and emotional learning is equally, if not more, important than early academics in determining school readiness. The HighScope Curriculum fully integrates academic and social-emotional learning in its curriculum content (key developmental indicators) and assessment (COR Advantage), addressing all domains of development: approaches to learning; social and emotional development; physical development and health; language, literacy, and communication (including English language learners); mathematics, science; social studies; and the creative arts. These domains are aligned with Common Core State Standards, the Head Start Child Development and Early Learning Framework and Early Head Start Essential Domains, state early childhood learning standards, and the standards and recommendations of professional educational organizations. The number and scope of state-funded early childhood programs has grown. With a few exceptions, state governments have invested in preschool programs aimed at serving at-risk children. Many states have already or are in the process of instituting universal preschool and full-day preschool. In addition to traditional, classroom-based preschool programs, states are also funding community-based initiatives with a birth-k focus. The HighScope Curriculum is appropriate for use in all of these settings and has an important role in state-funded early childhood programs.
