Early Years Foundation Stage (for children from birth to the end of their reception year)
The Department for Education states:
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework 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.
We are very happy to talk to you about the EYFS and to explain how we carry it out in Dragon's Nest, or you can find out more about the EYFS by clicking these links:
- parent/carer EYFS information (thanks to Devon County Council)
- EYFS information for parents and carers
We also hold information evenings for parents to explain what we do and how we do it, but we are happy to discuss any aspect of the EYFS at any time.
