Our Curriculum

ICDC implements the research-based, active learning HighScope curriculum. “Curriculum” encompasses the full range of the child’s experience at school. The HighScope curriculum is comprehensive and child-focused, with an appropriate balance of child-initiated activities and adult-guided active learning. Throughout each classroom session, highly-qualified teachers intentionally interact with children to build on their understanding and enhance learning. Play and peer-to-peer interaction are vital to provide children with opportunities to engage in abstract thinking, develop self-regulation skills, problem-solving, and oral language skills. The curriculum supports children’s learning in all areas of development. The children will have experiences in literacy, math, science, social studies, music, art, dramatic play, and large and small motor activities.  The curriculum also promotes children’s social and emotional development.
