All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten

by Robert Fulghum


Most of what I really need

To know about how to live

And what to do and how to be

I learned in kindergarten.

Wisdom was not at the top

Of the graduate school mountain,

But there in the sand-pile at Pre-school.

These are the things I learned:

Share everything.

Play fair.

Don't hit people.


Put things back where you found them.

Clean up your own mess.

Don't take things that aren't yours.

Say you're sorry when you hurt somebody.

Wash your hands before you eat.


Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.

Live a balanced life -

Learn some and think some

And draw and paint and sing and dance

And play and work everyday some.

Take a nap every afternoon.

When you go out into the world,

Watch out for traffic,

Hold hands and stick together.


Be aware of wonder.

The Early Years class, caters for children turning 3 by the first day of Term 2  to children turning 5 or 6 in their Grade R year.

The class is taught as a family group by Mrs Belinda Bray, a Pre-school specialist, with many years of experience. She is assisted by Mrs Polly and Mrs Betty. 

Early Years children may attend 3 or 5 days a week. Grade R children must attend 5 days a week. The Early Years classroom is a standalone facility within a fenced garden with an exciting, multi-faceted jungle gym, swings and sandpit in deep shade. There is a large grassed area allowing the children to run freely, play ball games and build houses with crates.

Each morning the garden is set up with equipment that stimulates creative and interactive play. Water play is offered daily, weather permitting. The shaded verandah also plays host to a variety of different activities each day.

The classroom is set up with a domestic play corner, blocks, various construction toys and play trays, a cognitive area with games, puzzles and books and a creative table for free choice activities.
