By Lorelli Mojica

In the EYFS profile handbook, the three Characteristics of Effective Learning breakdown the ways in which children should be learning from their environment, their experiences and the activities that they do. By the age of five years old it is expected that children should be displaying these characteristics all or most of the time every day.

Playing and Exploring – Characteristic 1

Playing and Exploring is all about how the child engages in learning. It can be broken down into three further areas:
  • Finding out and exploring
  • Playing with what they know
  • Being willing to ‘have a go’

    Why can't I access this?

    Why can’t I access this article? I have an Early Years Membership however I am being blocked from accessing this article about the characteristics of effective learning in children up to 5. It is saying I have to have a Primary Years Membership.

    Why?

    I would be really interested in this but it is available to Primary members and not EYFS. This does not make sense to me as the C of EL are surely EYFS.
