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. All English schools and Ofsted-registered early years providers must follow the EYFS, including childminders, preschools, nurseries and school reception classes.
Below are a selection of statements that link to reading and writing skills. You can find more detailed information and the rest of the statements in the Early Years Outcomes guidance. Each band overlaps to take into account the fact that children develop at their own rate and in their own ways. The statements should be used to help make best-fit judgements about whether a child is showing typical development for their age and to idenify their next steps.
Physical Development - Moving & Handling
Literacy - Reading
Literacy - Writing
