EYFS (nursery and reception class)

The Early Years Curriculum Framework

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.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Framework supports an integrated approach to early learning and care. 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 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.     

Early Years Outcomes

This document is a non-statutory guide to support practitioners and inspectors to help in understanding of child development through the early years. It can be used by childminders, nurseries and others, such as OFSTED, throughout the early years as a guide to making best-fit judgements about whether a child is showing typical development for their age, may be at risk of delay or is ahead for their age. It is a guide to a typical development  while recognising that children develop at their own rates and in their own ways. 

It is widely recognised the vital role that parents have in supporting their children's learning and development. Parents need to know what to expect in relation to their child's development through the different age bandsof the EYFS. 

What to expect, when? is a non statutory document, developed with parents for parents providing an overview of the EYFS Framework 2012. It is a simple guide which takes parents through the expectations of each age band in the EYFS and how they can support their children's learning and development. 

It also illustrates how parents can support their child during their foundation years.
