Implementing HighScope Approach

The HighScope Ireland active learning programmes provide a curriculum for infants and toddlers as well as children within Preschool settings.

The course offers participants the opportunity to discuss and reflect on the theory, principles and practices which underpin the HighScope Approach. It provides participants with active learning experiences and a mixture of individual tasks, small and large group activities and discussions. At the end of the course the trainer will carry out a site visit to each setting. On successful completion of all course requirements (attendance, assignments and site visit) participants will receive a HighScope Ireland certificate of Implementation.
