Early Years Foundation Stage

This link is for the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS),  which sets out the learning and development stages for children as they grow from birth to five years.  The EYFS outlines what all Early Years providers (including our school) need to do to support your child.
The purpose of this booklet is 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.


Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. This booklet has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.


There are some examples of some ideas and tips as to how you can help your child’s learning and development.
