The Early Years Foundation Stage is the mandatory framework for all early years providers: nurseries, pre-schools, reception classes and childminders. It has recently been revised and the new version comes into force in September 2012. Tonight I attended a training course about the revised EYFS. It covered all the significant changes and additions, including the new progress check that we are now required to carry out for children aged 2-3 years. Lots of food for thought!
