- Use language and the visual arts to freely and flexibly communicate his or her thoughts and feelings.
- Achieve a strong foundation for reading and writing.
- Acquire a foundation in the key cognitive skills which lead to mathematical and logical thought: representation, number, classification, seriation, time, and spacial relations.
- Begin to learn the arts of listening, empathy, cooperative play, conflict resolution and negotiation.
