ALL I REALLY NEEDED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN 

In his famous essay, Robert Fulghum speculated that everything one needs to know is learned in kindergarten. The Mills Lawn kindergarten program reflects that whole-child, developmental philosophy. Read his essay and look at our pictures to see if you agree.
 
 
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 sandbox in kindergarten. 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.
Flush.
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 every day 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.
 
-Robert Fulghum
