What is EYFS?
The revised Early Years Foundation Stage. What does it mean?
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a document for early years providers, to help them support your children’s learning and development from birth to five years old.
Who makes sure that registered early years providers are following the EYFS?
All registered early years providers are inspected by Ofsted to make sure they meet the legal requirements of the EYFS. We are also provided support from the Local Early years’ advisory team, who also visit to ensure standards are being met.Our Ofsted report can be found here: here
