Early Years Foundation Stage

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework set out by the Department of Education that sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning to ensure children are ready for school and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.
