Freehold Twp./Freehold Boro Preschool
The High Scope educational approach which ABC Spectrum Preschool implements are consistent with the best practices recommended by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and other guidelines for developmentally based programs.
HighScope’s educational approach emphasizes “active participatory 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. Teachers and parents offer physical, emotional, and intellectual support. In active learning settings, adults expand children’s thinking with diverse materials and nurturing interactions. Through scaffolding, adults help children gain knowledge and develop creative problem-solving skills.
ABC Spectrum Preschool is located 2 miles off of Rt. 33 on Millhurst Rd. in Manalapan Twp. Close to the northwest border of Freehold.
