A NOTE FROM HIGHREACH & LEARNING BOX-------------All HighReach Learning curriculum programs are based on the philosophy that children learn best through hands-on activities that address the needs of the whole child. In addition, each HighReach Learning program reflects the belief that children need a balance of child-initiated and teacher-facilitated activities each day. This approach reflects the beliefs of Jean Piaget, Erik Erikson, Lev Vygotsky, David Ausubel, and Jerome Bruner. This approach is grounded in sound child development theory and appropriate practices. Themes are used to introduce information and learning takes place as a child explores and manipulates real objects and events.
Sharon Mayberry, BS, M.Ed. and Kathy Kelley, BS founded HighReach Learning in 1986. As owners and operators of their own child development centers, Ms. Mayberry and Ms. Kelley found that locating quality-teaching materials was quite a challenge. To give their parents, teachers, and children the careful guidance and creative focus they were after, they knew they would need to write their own curriculum program. And so the process began. Today, HighReach Learning is a direct supplier and creator of early childhood educational materials for children 3 months to 7 years of age. We currently service customers in all fifty states in the US, as well as serve international customers in Canada, Germany, Mexico, Italy, Taiwan, Japan, and the Virgin Islands. The HighReach Learning customer base includes public and private schools, Head Start programs, child development centers, family daycare providers, YMCA centers, church-based preschools and more.
The Learning Box Preschool program was developed by an experienced teacher to ensure that children would be introduced to necessary skills and concepts in pre-writing, pre-reading, math, science, social studies, music, creative arts, health, etc in a fun and enjoyable way.
A NOTE FROM EARLY ADVANTAGE -----
Parents ~Welcome to Early Advantage! We are an independent publishing company with a mission to bring the very best educational resources to children. To do this we seek, find or create high quality learning programs for young children in America and around the world.
The Early Advantage family of programs, such as MUZZY: the BBC Language Course for Children, focus on the inborn abilities of all young children to receive, process, and learn by leaps and bounds.
Through our programs, parents and teachers can realize their dreams of providing children the early advantage of rich educational experiences in the early years of life. Early Advantage's products are attuned to the "window of opportunity" years for learning that science now shows can give a child an advantage for life. MUZZY, created by the British Broadcasting Corporation, has given millions of children, parents, and teachers, worldwide, an early start on a second language. It was first brought to the U.S. by longtime publisher David Ward. Impressed and impassioned by its success with his own daughter, he eventually bought the business and founded Early Advantage, which now provides a host of learning programs for children.
MUZZY Language Programs
Created by the BBC, the acclaimed MUZZY language learning courses target a child's “window of opportunity” to learn a second or even a third language. The lovable MUZZY and his delightful friends will guide the children on the journey to learning a new language. Click here for more information about MUZZY Programs.
The BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) is one of the most respected creators and producers of broadcast programming in the world. By virtue of its broad reach and excellent programming, the BBC's reputation as a teacher of language is unparalleled. Its most famous language program, Follow Me, (also known as BBC English), is the most popular language course for adults ever created. MUZZY, is similarly, the most popular language learning program ever created for children. MUZZY has been used in national curriculum (for example, in Canada and France), in forward-looking public and private schools from Thailand to Turkey and in homes from the U.S. and U.K. to Mexico and Japan.
Here at Elite Kids Learning Academy, we have been using the Muzzy Spanish and French programs for more than 10 years now and our children have loved every part of the curriculum. Our Toddler classrooms start at the program and continue through Kindergarten.
Bright Babies is a wonderful program we have been using for years in our Infant Room. This program comes from Highreach and follows the same Themes as the rest of the classes. For more information, click on this - "ACADEMICS FOR BABIES?" or on the same link above.
