Our preschool program at Youth Skills Center employs the HighScope Curriculum for an interactive and hands-on learning approach. Every hour is filled with fresh, new learning experiences, building a strong and thorough foundation for the future of your child's education. But our work goes above and beyond "kindergarten readiness." YSC Preschool uses methods that help build and promote curiosity, creativity, cooperation, independence, and more.
The HighScope Preschool Curriculum is an integral part of our approach to learning. It is a comprehensive curriculum, with learning focused on eight key content areas. The philosophy behind this curriculum is intriguing and we truly feel that this is the best approach to develop healthy, creative, independent, and bright students. After all, "today's children are tomorrow's leaders!" HighScope does a great job detailing the effects and benefits of their preschool curriculum:
Beginning with the Perry Preschool Study, HighScope revolutionized early childhood education with a new approach to teaching and learning. Research based and child focused, the HighScope Curriculum uses a carefully designed process — called "active participatory learning" — to achieve powerful, positive outcomes.Learn More about HighScope
Undoubtedly, teachers are second most prominent figures in a preschool child's life. A large portion the child's time is spent with their teacher in school, so the importance of good, caring, "intentional" teachers cannot be stressed enough.
Our teachers and staff at YSC are caring and devoted to making a difference in your child's life. Everyone here — from the bus driver to the teacher, the receptionist to the director — is truly dedicated to their task and takes their responsibilities as a role model seriously. And that really makes all the difference in the world.
With the HighScope curriculum as the backbone of our program, we take a fresh approach to the way we spend our time with your child. Our schedule focuses on creative learning activities, stresses the importance of play, and maintains a healthy level of physical activity. In fact, during the summer, all of our preschool children also have the option to swim daily, under the supervision and instruction of a certified swim instructor or lifeguard.
Our schedule also takes into account your hectic, varying work hours and other arrangements. Our mornings, like most others', are filled with new content and reinforcement of old concepts; likewise, our teachers review and strengthen the same content in the afternoon as well! This allows for an effective part time program, with both morning and afternoon programs rich in educational content, and an unrivaled full day program, allowing our teachers additional time to review and reinforce the daily concepts and material. We truly believe we can make a difference in your child's education.
