HIGH FIVE® is Canada's quality standard for children's recreation and sport. Before HIGH FIVE, no standard existed and there was a clear need for an innovative approach to help organizations enhance program quality and provide positive experiences for children, which would remain with them for a lifetime.
HIGH FIVE holds true to the five Principles of healthy child development that the research indicates are essential for quality programs:
- A Caring Adult,
- The opportunity to make Friends,
- The opportunity to Play,
- The opportunity to Master Skills and
- The opportunity to Participate.
We encourage you to learn more about the HIGH FIVE difference and why it has become the standard of excellence for children's sport and recreation programming. Please take a short quiz to find out what quality means to you.
