This training is designed to give participants an opportunity to reflect on the time they spend as a group with children in their care, typically called “circle time”. Participants will look at the reasons behind circle time, why do they have it? They will investigate closely what the children are getting out of this part of the routine, what skills are being enhanced. Participants will look at how the components of circle time meet the developmental needs of the children in their care.
