Characteristics of effective learning

At Young Friends Kindergarten we are highly interested in how your child learns as opposed to what they learn.

This individual drive will stay with them for life. Fostering and developing it at an early age will establish a firm foundation and a wonderful curiosity.

Our staff are trained to look for and recognise these ‘Characteristics of Effective Learning.’ They are:

Playing and exploring – how children investigate and experience things and “have a go”

Active learning – how children concentrate and keep on trying if they encounter difficulties and enjoy their achievements.

Creativity and thinking critically – how children have and develop their own ideas and make links between ideas. They develop strategies for doing things.

Seeing your child’s characteristics of learning will help us to understand what makes them tick, helping us to further enable their development.
