Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5. This is an important stage as it helps your child get ready for school and also preparing them for their future learning and achievements. Your child’s early years’ experience should support their development, care and learning needs; this should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure. Nurseries, pre-schools, reception classes and childminders registered to deliver the EYFS follow a legal document called the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.
