WEB EXTRA: Reading, Writing...And Philosophy?

WJAR --  At Carriage House Day Care in Cranston, Rhode Island kindergartners are learning reading, writing and arithmetic coupled with some unconventional lessons like yoga and philosophy.

"I wanted to find something that could highlight their critical thinking piece because they're deep thinkers," said Tammy Donohue, who works at Carriage House.

Donohue entered her kids in a national philosophy competition. Scout Brocklehurst has her own philosophy in the classroom.

"Because no one wants to get in trouble," Brocklehurst said.

Scout just happened to place first in the competition.
