Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
The EYFS offers flexible and quality education to help meet statutory requirements, delivered by specialist sector experts and based on:
specialist knowledge and understanding of all aspects of early years and childcare, a thorough understanding of provision in EYFS
The prime areas of learning in EYFS are based on Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal, social and emotional development, Literacy, Numeracy and Understanding the world and Expressive arts and design. Throughout the year, teachers and practitioners will observe the development of children and track their progress in the age/stage bands, in order to understand the needs of individuals. Progress can be shown on the individual tracker. Outcomes must be shared with parents, together with a short commentary on each child's skills and abilities in relation to the three key characteristics of effective learning.
