  • Develop social skills

  • Respond to music

  • Develop physical skills through movement

  • Create through art and drama experiences

  • Develop problem-solving skills

  • Learn through hands-on experiences

  • Practice self-regulation skills

  • Apply cognitive skills

  • Make discoveries

  • Work cooperatively
