IT'S A FIVE-YEAR-OLD'S FAIRYLAND: At least it seems that way to this class of kindergartners in their first day of school and their first real experience in community playing and learning. There were some tears from both children and their parents at first, but these dried up quickly when the adults had left and the toys and playthings were clearly sighted. This is a kindergarten classroom in Tappan Junior High School, under the jurisdiction of Eberbach School Principal Helen Pratt.
