Child Development Program

Our Child Development classes offer you the opportunity to study child growth and development in theory, as well as to actually work with children in our H-F Preschool Program! These classes have been offered since 1971. Throughout the years, the program has been very successful and has been supported by our community. The pride that students have in the Preschool Program has, and continues to be, one of the biggest motivating factors in their academic achievements and success. We believe that our students gain valuable first-hand experiences working with children. The preschool is staffed by Juniors and Seniors who have completed a semester in Child Development theory. The students operate the program along with and under the guidance of the high school child development instructor. Students plan and present unique lessons and activities for the preschoolers. The curriculum includes Social Studies, Math, Art, Music, Science, Physical Education and other activities appropriate for the preschool child. The preschoolers complete a project each day, which reinforces the concepts presented in the lesson.
