full-Day Programs

Wee Care and BPS Early Childhood Center offer a play-based program that follows the HighScope Curriculum. 

Children’s interest and choices are at the heart of all HighScope programs and ours is no exception! We believe that children learn best through “child-initiated learning" - an approach that uses active involvement, hands-on learning, and through their own exploration and play.

This curriculum aligns with the Early Childhood Standards of Quality - a strong foundation for school readiness, to enhance cognitive, physical, social-emotional, and creative development is the focus of our high-quality program.
