Characteristics of Effective Learning

We want children to:

  • Be independent.
  • Love learning and to be life-long learners.
  • Challenge themselves out of their own comfort zone, taking risks in order to achieve to the best of their ability.
  • Never give up and to keep trying until they succeed.

The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum describes these characteristics as the ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning.’ We want to promote these characteristics in children because if children have these characteristics they are more likely to succeed, not just at Nursery but in life.
