I only take 2-5 year olds.(Most are 3-4). My young 2 year old does not always want to participate and misbehaves so now we have our circle time standing up! The kids were always pulling at the calendar and ripping things so I rose it up to my height and the kids stand, move, dance, clap and sing during circle instead of sit still. It works wonderfully. Then the younger thinks its fun to do it too when he doesnt have to sit the whole time. When we have storytime we all sit together on the rug. If I had littles (crawling to under 2) I would set up a playpen area with quiet toys to keep them from acting out when the others were having circle. (That is if they didnt have morning nap which would be the ideal time).
