2. Social and Behavioral
We offer the child an opportunity to interact with other children of her/his own age in planned activities and free play. We strive to establish a feeling of respect for other people and their property. We seek to strengthen self-image and foster self-control.

3. Physical Development
The school selects activities that use large and small muscles in games and play, aerobics, manipulative and non-manipulative activities, loco-motor and creative movement exercises.
