“幼儿主动学习”（"activelearning"）自著名教育专家皮亚杰首次提出后， 已经成为全世界主流学前教学模式的核心理念。HighScope 公益教育基金会在上个世纪六十年代基于皮亚杰的“主动学习”教育理念首创了实践该教育理念的教学模式。
经过40多年的研究和实践， HighScope基金会不仅论证了该教学模式对幼儿在学习内驱力和兴趣，语言发展，解决问题能力，和社交能力等方面发展的高效性， 也通过40多年在50万个教室的实践积累了一整套帮助幼儿园落地该教育理念的教学模式和课程体系。该体系在经历了几十万个教室的论证证明是高效的和实用的。
“幼儿主动学习”教学模式包含5大要素，13个教学实践模块, 32个儿童发展评价点，58个关键发展经验点， 以及数百个项目认证评价关键点。

HighScope Educational Research Foundation is an independent nonprofit research, development, training, and public outreach organization with headquarters in Ypsilanti, Michigan. HighScope's mission is to lift lives through education. They envision a world in which all educational settings use active participatory learning so everyone has a chance to succeed in life and contribute in society.
HighScope was established in 1970 by the late David P. Weikart, PhD (1931-2003), who started the organization to continue research and program activities -- including the Perry Preschool Project -- he originally initiated as an administrator with the Ypsilanti public schools. The name "HighScope" refers to the organization's high purposes and far-reaching mission. Dr. Weikart retired from HighScope in December 2000. Lawrence J. Shweinhart, PhD, served as the President of the HighScope Foundation from 2003-2013 when he retired. Cheryl Polk, PhD is the current President of the HighScope Foundation.
HighScope's research-validated preschool education approach is used throughout the world, and International Institutes for the dissemination of HighScope materials and ideas are located in the UK, Indonesia, Ireland, Mexico, South Africa, The Netherlands, Chile, and many other countries.
