The Characteristics of Effective Learning describe learning as a process and not as an event.  The three characteristics of effective teaching are elements of EYFS practise, which reminds practitioners to reflect on different ways that children learn.  It works wonderfully with older children.

It especially supports the world class curriculum.  The way it details how children should be learning from their environment, experiences and activities is key to developing the curriculum and goes further than just one important part.
