HighScope has partnered with Gretchen’s House to reopen the HighScope Demonstration Preschool on HighScope’s Ypsilanti campus. HighScope’s Demonstration Preschool has been a fixture on the campus since 1971 and, for the first time in the Foundation’s history, took a gap year for the 2020–2021 school year. HighScope and Gretchen’s House are thrilled to form a partnership to uphold high-quality early learning as a beacon for the early childhood community. Gretchen’s House @ HighScope open and space is available for sixteen children who will turn four by December 1st. In addition, Gretchen’s House @ HighScope has recently opened an infant & toddler classroom that is open for enrollment.
