Learn what words mean (stop – go; full – empty)

Learn about time and discover how things feel, taste, look and smell

Learn about art, science, math, music, nature, animals and people


Girls and boys begin to understand themselves and others

Act out feelings, learn to share, take turns, listen and follow rules
