The circle time experience is an early opportunity for children to learn group behavior, including turn taking, listening, expressing ideas, and learning new concepts. This activity is an important stepping stone for formal education and social interactions. Everyday we group together for a story time. The children learn new songs, concepts, and social skills. Here is a beautiful picture of the children, varying in age from a little over one year to two and a half years, sitting for a story with Ayala. The have learnt to sit for the full 45 minutes. They concentrate, respond appropriately, are respectful of the process.
