Introduction to Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage, commonly referred to as the EYFS is a framework that all Early
Years providers, including childminders, must follow.
This course aims to provide a gentle introduction to the expectations of the Early Years Foundation
Stage and it can also act as a refresher for those wanting to update their knowledge. It will introduce
you to some of the key documents and legislation that relate to Early Years providers, the process
for registering with Ofsted and the various policies and procedures that need to be in place. It also
covers learning and development requirements, how to observe and assess the progress of children
in your care and the safeguarding and welfare requirements laid out in the EYFS Framework.
