Curriculum

Our curriculum is literacy-based and focuses on language development and social/emotional growth for toddlers. Books and thematic activities, along with enrichment materials, provide toddlers with a rich awareness of the world around them and establish a foundation for reading, science, and math.

Added Values

  • Developmental screenings twice a year (fall and spring) to assess student progress  and growth

  • Teachers use screening results to assess skill levels and target specific developmental achievements or deficits in order to individualize instruction

  • Teachers communicate with parents throughout the day through messages and pictures so that parents feel part of their child's learning and development while at High Hopes
