Living Word Early Learning Center uses the HighScope Curriculum in all classrooms approved by the state of Ohio. HighScope’s educational approach emphasizes “Active participating learning.” Active learning means students have direct, hands on experiences with people, objects, events, and ideas. Children’s interests and choices are at the heart of HighScope programs. They construct their own knowledge through interactions with the world and the people around them. Children take the first step in the learning process by making choices and following through on their plans and decisions.
