Introduction to Early Years Foundation Stage

Approved by CPD

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for children’s learning, development, and care from birth to age 5. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers, including childminders, preschools, nurseries, and school reception classes, must follow the EYFS.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework supports an integrated early learning and care approach. It gives all professionals a set of common principles and commitments to deliver quality early education and childcare experiences to all children.

As well as being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of where they choose for their child’s early education, they can be assured that the same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child’s learning and development experience.

This course aims to provide a gentle introduction to the expectations of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and it can also act as a refresher for those who want to update their knowledge. It will introduce you to some key documents and legislation related to early years providers, the process for registering with Ofsted, and the various policies and procedures that must be implemented. It also covers learning and development requirements, observing and assessing children’s progress in your care, and the safeguarding and welfare requirements laid out in the EYFS Framework.
