By play, children learn, so this is incredibly important.

The director and teachers, however, should know the preschool goals for each age group. Such strategies should be suitable for the activities of the children's ages. Again, children learn through play. They must be fully immersed in the learning process through physical means. Children should be holding books, listening to music, touching blocks, dancing, moving math manipulations, etc.
