Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In this section you'll find information on the EYFS - who needs to work with it, why there is a need for it and how it helps children to learn and develop.

It also helps parents to understand what they can do at home and how they can work alongside the childminder to further support their child’s development.
