The EYFS Framework supports all professionals working in reception classes, pre-schools, nursery classes, day nurseries and childminding settings. It sets out: The legal welfare requirements to keep your child safe.
Marsh Gibbon Preschool have decided to use the Birth to 5 Matters guidance. It is a non-statutory guidance which we will use to support our implementation of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which sets out the legal requirements for delivering education for children from birth to 5 years old in England. Building on previous non-statutory guidance for the EYFS, it has been updated to reflect the research evidence and meet the needs of practitioner today. It outlines the foundations of good practice and offers information and guidance for us to consider how the Principles of the EYFS can be brought to life in our setting. New sections on play, characteristics of effective learning, and self-regulation are designed to help practitioners to reflect on and develop our own pedagogy
