The High Scope Curriculum not only helps young children excel in language and cognitive learning but also promotes independence, curiosity, decision-making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving.
These are the fundamental skills that help determine success in adult life. The Future Generation teaching staff assists children enrolled in the Preschool/Pre-K Education Program to implement the plan-do-review process each day as part of their daily routine at our Learning Center in Colts Neck and Bloomfield New Jersey.
This process strengthens initiative and self-reliance within the child. Our staff focuses on adult-child interaction and ensures that the children in their class are supported in a carefully designed and well equipped learning environment.
Future Generation’s staff focuses on the process of adult-child interaction, working alongside children and communicating with them both verbally and non verbally to encourage learning. Our Preschool/ Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are divided into interest areas stocked with a stimulating range of materials designed for specific types of play, Materials are arranged in consistent places and the shelves are tagged with child-friendly labels so that children can get out and put away materials themselves. The classroom’s organization also helps children understand how the world is organized, and concepts like more, less, same, different, large, small, in, out, in front of, etc.
The daily routine serves as the consistent framework for each day at Future Generation. It provides a balanced variety of experiences and learning opportunities. Children engage in both individual and social play, participate in small- and large-group activities, assist with cleanup, socialize during meals, develop self-care skills, and exercise their small and large muscles. The most important segment of the daily routine is the plan-do-review sequence, in which children make choices about what they will do, carry out their ideas, and reflect upon their activities with adults and other children.
Each day the following curriculum content areas are highlighted through the development of daily plans created by Future Generation’s Teaching Staff:
While learning in these content areas prepares children for later schooling, Our High Scope curriculum takes the learning process beyond traditional academic subjects by applying methods that promote independence, curiosity, decision making, cooperation, persistence, creativity, and problem solving in young children.
