Foundations for Life

All I really need to know I learned in 

kindergarten and 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.

•   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 in the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands and stick together.

•   Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Styrofoam cup: the roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
