Inclusive Preschool

Research tells us that children learn best when they are actively engaged in the activity setting. We know that children are most engaged in their surroundings when they are playing. At High Hopes we use this knowledge to set up a classroom environment that is rich with learning opportunities. Centers for dramatic play, reading, blocks & manipulative play, science & math, movement & music, and computer time entice the interests, preferences and abilities for all children in the classroom.

Teachers assume the role as "coaches" and follow the lead of each child, identifying "natural learning" opportunities and supporting the child to be successful as he learns and explores new activities. Children with special needs require the same engagement in play in order to learn new skills.

The following are a list of High Hopes’ Classes:
