What is HIGH FIVE® ?

HIGH FIVE® is Canada's quality standard for children's programs. 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® promotes the following five principles of healthy child development that research says are essential for quality programs:

  • a caring adult
  • friends
  • play
  • mastery
  • participation

HIGH FIVE® empowers organizations to provide the best possible experiences for children in their sport and recreation programs through the use of these five principles.
