Early Years Foundation Stage

The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets standards for the learning, development and care of your child from birth to 5 years old.

 

Areas of learning

 

Your child will mostly be taught through games and play.

 

The areas of learning are:

 

  • communication and language
  • physical development
  • personal, social and emotional development
  • literacy
  • mathematics
  • understanding the world
  • expressive arts and design

 

Assessments

 

Your child’s progress will be reviewed when they’re between 2 and 3 by an early years practitioner or health visitor.

 

Their class teacher will assess them at the end of the school year when they turn 5.

 

The assessment is based on classroom observation – your child won’t be tested. It uses the early learning goals, which can be found in the early years framework.
