The new EYFS is mandatory from today. All providers in England will now be inspected against the updated framework. This brings together all the changes in legislation published since the 2014 framework.
The changes to the framework are not huge, but you should take the time to review the changes that have been made and familiarise yourself with the new framework. Hear from PACEY Associate and Childminder, Charlie Chewter, who talks through the changes below.
We've produced an EYFS 2017 at-a-glance document to walk you through the changes, and a blog from our friends at the British Heart Foundation exploring the Chief Medical Officers’ Guidelines for physical activity and what it means for early years professionals.
Now that the framework has been updated and released, we are in the process of updating our training and resources to ensure that the information is accurate.
We are selling printed copies of the EYFS framework document. Please note that these copies are produced on a non-profit basis - the cost of the product covers printing and production only.
