SCENE 1
In the Day Care Center, everyone is reading a list of activities, when Zoe greets the viewer. She asks Gina, who's inspecting the broken sink nearby, why a list is important, and asks her to name the order of activities - first is fingerpainting, then playing a game, and lastly reading a story. Everyone wants to start fingerpainting, but due to the sink being broken, they can't, and Gina postpones the activity until the sink's fixed. Zoe frets about what to do, and Irvine leads the others into a fingerpaint-tempting chant.
