Curriculum

HighReach Learning curriculum

All HighReach Learning curriculum programs are based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of the whole child. In addition, each HighReach Learning curriculum reflects the belief that children need a balance of child-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities each day. This approach reflects the beliefs of Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, David Ausubel, and Jerome Bruner. This approach is grounded in sound child development theory and appropriate practices. HighReach Learning also reviews state and national standards for early childhood education and takes these into account when planning curriculum. Themes are used to introduce information and learning takes place as a child explores and manipulates real objects and events.

Main Points

  • Learning experiences that are age-appropriate for your child

    Each HighReach Learning Curriculum contains age-specific activities that promote creativity, family involvement, and the development of the whole child. Daily experiences capture and support the learning of important skills and concepts.

  • Fun and meaningful learning activities

    As your child matures and moves to the next classroom he/she encounters a hight level of learning that challenges growth in his/her abilities while allowing them to still have fun! Skills range from learning basic colors with younger children to exploring the alphabet with older children.

  • Information about what your child is learning

    Throughout each month, your child will bring home materials to keep you up-to-date on what he/she is learning at school. Creative art projects such as painted pictures, collages, and child-created books, are just a few of the items your child may enjoy creating. Be sure to spend time talking with your child about what he/she is learning at school. You’ll be amazed to discover how much your child is learning through the HighReach Learning curriculum.
