High Scope Curriculum

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Teachers perform screenings and assessments on all the children in their care and seek direction from the program facilitator and/or the Early Learning Coalition of the Big Bend. Individual lesson plans are implemented for children who show signs of late growth or development.
