In the Early Years Foundation Stage, the Characteristics of Effective Learning is to support the development of the Unique child in how children are learning:

Play and Exploring - Engagement

Active Learning - Motivation

Creating and Thinking Critically - Thinking.

So, we learn through planned play activities and self initiated activities.  This is to ensure the children have fun, learn basic skills, communicate with others and become independent.  

The Early Years Foundation Stage consists of 3 'Prime' areas of learning:
