They learn that school is a safe place, that teachers love and care for them and that it's okay to make mistakes and try again until you succeed. Social skills are also included in their bag. They begin learning how to be a good friend and a responsible student.

Hopefully, she says, the largest portion of their bag is filled with a never ending supply of curiosity for learning new things.
