EXPLORING THE CHARACTERISTICS OF EFFECTIVE LEARNING

DESCRIPTION:

The Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2017 states that there are four guiding principles which should shape practice in early years settings. One of those principles is that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. In planning and guiding children's activities, practitioners must reflect these in their practice. The three characteristics of effective learning are:

  • Play & exploration
  • Active learning 
  • Creativity & critical thinking

They describe the characteristics of lifelong learning and are important for everyone involved with young children, parents and practitioners alike. We will be looking at the role of the adult and the role of child initiated play in supporting these different aspects of how children learn.
