Circle time, also called large group time, is a time for children come together to learn and have fun, solve problems, and be part of a community. During this special time of the day, children begin looking at the world from the perspective of 'we' and 'ours'. As children and teachers come together to talk and learn, a feeling of community grows and children become more comfortable functioning as a group. Specific effective circle time experiences with descriptions of appropriate activities and transitions for helping children move from one activity to the next and strategies for keeping children engaged during circle time are introduced through this course. Funding for this 2-hour training was provided by the Workforce Solutions as part of their Early Care and Education Quality Improvement initiative.
