EYFS (Early years foundation stage)
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5 years old. All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
Further information about EYFS may be found on the Foundation Years website.
The Foundation Years website also features a booklet to help you as a parent/carer find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS: What to expect, when? A parents’ guide.
