EYFS stands for the Early Years Foundation Stage and it sets the standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old.
All schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, pre-schools, nurseries and school reception classes.
This is achieved through guidance from the EYFS Statutory Framework, which 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 being the core document for all professionals working in the foundation years, the EYFS framework gives mums and dads confidence that regardless of the setting they choose for their child's early education, they can be assured that same statutory commitments and principles will underpin their child's learning and development experiences.
I use a fantastic, secure online system called Babysdays which is used to communicate everything with parents such as photographs, contracts, invoicing, permission forms, accident forms and much much more.
