Characteristics of effective early learning


The  Characteristics of Effective Early Learning help children to:

  • keep trying
  • to have a go
  • to have their own ideas
  • to find new ways to do things
  • to be curious and ask questions.

At the Royal Spa Nursery we have animals that help children understand these learning characteristics.

We have:

  • A squirrel called “Have a go Mo”.
  • A cat called “Curious Cat”.
  • A spider called “Try again Tommy”.
  • An owl called “Ideas Ivy”.


They all have a story that helps the children to talk about their learning.
