Being a learner

Early Years Learning Framework

Outcome 4: Children are confident and involved learners

Involvement in learning

A child is a confident and involved knower and learner. They:

  • build dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity
  • apply a range of skills and processes such as problem-solving, enquiry, experimentation, hypothesising, researching and investigating.

Investigating environments

A child explores, investigates and connects with people, land, place, time and technology. They:

  • transfer and adapt what they have learned from one context to another and from one time to another
  • resource their own learning through connecting with people, place, technologies, and natural and processed materials
  • use information and communication technologies (ICTs) to access information, investigate ideas and represent their thinking.
