HIGH FIVE® is the only comprehensive quality training standard available in Canada.  HIGH FIVE® is based on five Principles which emphasize the social, emotional and cognitive needs of children to help front line leaders engage participants, build relationships and resolve conflict. These Principles: A Caring Adult, Friends, Play, Mastery and Participation, all play a crucial part in providing children with quality recreation experiences.
