Services for Young Children Briefings and Presentations

Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The EYFS continues to change and providers will need to review their policies and practices to ensure they are compliant with the statutory framework.

The presentations below have been delivered at local provider briefings. The presentations are not an exhaustive list of all the changes but they do highlight the key points. Providers are required to review the documents themselves and ensure that their own policies and practices take account of these statutory duties.
