HIGHSCOPE EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH FOUNDATION
In 1962, David Weikart, the founder of HighScope, with his Perry Preschool Project discovered that a high quality preschool program can significantly increase children’s future success and contributions to families and society.
The Program was designed to anticipate the rapidly changing world by preparing children using active learning and progressive constructivism.
Started in the US, HighScope spread to several countries:
Indonesia – Ireland – Mexico – The Netherlands – The United Kingdom – Portugal – Canada - China – Chile – Peru – South Africa – Korea
HIGHSCOPE IN INDONESIA
