Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework
This is the stage in a child's life that gets them ready and prepares them for school, as well as for their future learning and successes. The EYFS was created to ensure that a child's first 5 years are happy, active, exciting, fun and secure, as well as to support their development, care and learning needs.
Learning and development covers the 7 key areas of learning within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which are:
- personal, social and emotional development
- communication and language
- physical development
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
