toward meeting these goals:

- To provide the children with a wide variety of activities and
experiences which will build the firm foundations for later academic
- Conceptual development
- Language development
- Listening and following directions
- Thinking and decision making
- Independence and responsibility
- To provide children with opportunities to practice large and small motor skills.
