Group B (Age 3 by August 31) meets twice a week for 2 hours each time. The capacity for Group B is 16 children. There are three working parents in this group in addition to the teacher. Group B begins with a short teacher-guided circle time that includes peer interactions and practice of school-readiness skills. The children then move into free-choice time to explore the developmentally appropriate environment. Enhanced centers that include science, self-help skills, and fine motor activities are expanded for Group B. Group B also has group times for story and music, snack, and outside play during their school day.
