CURRICULUM

Community Preschool uses the HighScope curriculum.  In the HighScope approach, teachers and children are active partners in the learning process.  This balanced approach to adult-child interaction- also called "intentional teaching" - is critical to the effectiveness  of the program.  It includes techniques for encouraging learning in specific content areas as well as strategies for helping children resolve conflict.  Through this curriculum, our teachers give preschoolers a sense of control over the events of the day by planning a consistent daily routine that enables the children to anticipate what happens next.  Central elements of the preschool daily routine include the plan-do-review sequence, small-and-large-group times, greeting time and outside time.  The HighScope curriculum is in alignment with the Michigan Early Learning Expectations for three-and-four year old children.
