Characteristics of Effective Learning - Nursery and Reception 2020

 

These support the development of the Unique Child in how children are learning. Practitioners use these to make judgements about how children learn and to plan to cater for each child’s unique learning style. The characteristics of learning share equal importance with the learning outcomes and Early Learning Goals are outlined in the development matters. These provide a crucial insight into children’s preferences for play, learning needs and methods of communication both independently and in groups alongside others. 

 

Playing and exploring – engagement

  • Finding out and exploring
  • Playing with what they know
