Families board between the A and B groups. So after the first 60 people have boarded. Only unaccompanied minors and those needing extra time get a pre-board (and you need a blue ticket jacket from the agent to pre-board)

Not what I saw when I recently flew them.
Boarding group A (A1-A30 first, then A31-A60)
Boarding group B
To pre-board, you had to be issued a blue pre-boarding pass by someone...I saw several families with kids that had these.
Anything after the preboarding passengers are done is general boarding. You need either a blue preboard sleeve (can be obtained by speaking to a CSA) or have an obvious disability to preboard. Families with A can board in their position, the rest go in Family Boarding after A. You will sometimes see families preboard, usually it's because someone in the party has a peanut allergy and they need to go onboard and wipe the seats down.
