Advantages of this course

The Early Years Foundation Stage was introduced in 2008 and sets the standards for learning, development, and care for children from birth to five. It is mandatory for all early years providers: maintained schools; non-maintained schools; independent schools; all providers on the Early Years Register; and all providers registered with and early years childminder agency.

The course introduces the themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and explains how they can be put into practice. Taking the themes of ‘A unique child’, ‘Positive relationships’, ‘Enabling environments’, and ‘Learning and development’, you will be directed to the official resources supporting EYFS and videos which give more information on the principles

Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning

There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
