Nursery New Starters 2020

Starting Nursery

The characteristics of effective learning are:

Children, in our nursery, learn through play. Adults carefully observe the children at their play to identify their learning style and interest. The observations are used to ensure that teaching is accurately matched to the children’s needs and motivates children to further learning.

 

Playing and exploring (which emphasises the importance of engagement)

– Finding out and exploring
– Using what they know in their play
– Being willing to have a go

 

Active learning (focuses on motivation)

– Being involved and concentrating
– Keeping on trying
– Enjoying and achieving what they set out to do

Creating and thinking critically (concerned with the development of thinking skills)

– Having their own ideas
– Using what they already know to learn new things
– Choosing ways to do things and finding new ways
