What is the EYFS?

The Early Years Foundation Stage

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets the standard that all early years' providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children's school readiness and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress though school and life

Overarching Principles of the EYFS

Guiding principles should shape practice in early year's settings. These are:
Every child is unique child, who is actually learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured;
Children learn to be strong and independent though Positive relationships;
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments. In which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is strong partnership between practitioners and parents and /or carers; and Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
The framework covers the education and care of all children in early year's provision. Including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
