Circle time is a well-used and traditional activity and creates a great opportunity for practitioners and children to discuss, consult and makes decisions about things that are important to them. Circle time nurtures children's emotional health, and their sense of democracy.
During circle time children are provided with opportunities to develop their social and emotional literacy by:
- Learning to provide supportive listening
- Feeling empathy and acquiring language for sharing feelings and ideas.
- Develop a positive self-image
