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
- understanding the world
- expressive arts and design
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.
