Children need to know love and learn kindness.
Learning is fun
Children need to know that learning is fun; they need to let their imaginations and curiosity soar, to explore their own skills and talents.
They need to learn new things every day, expanding horizons, opening minds
Children need to learn respect for themselves and for other people, and that every human being has value and dignity.
