"Head Start of Rockland acknowledges that all children learn at individual rates and have individual interests, languages, cultures and development. Teachers provide an environment where the facility, classroom setup, materials, activities and experiences take into account and build on these differences. A nationally recognized curriculum known as HIGH/SCOPE was adapted by Head Start of Rockland for use in its classrooms. The HIGH/SCOPE philosophy incorporates the same beliefs and values as Head Start for providing developmentally appropriate practices for young children. The nationally recognized Parents As Teachers (PAT) program is currently the model for Head Start of Rockland?s Early Head Start home-based program."
