Early Years Foundation Stage

What is the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)?

Happy to play at Ludwick NurseryThe EYFS is how the Government and early years professionals describe the time in your child’s life between birth and age 5. This is a very important stage as it helps your child get ready for school as well as preparing them for their future learning and successes. From when your child is born up until the age of 5, their early years experience should be happy, active, exciting, fun and secure; and support their development, care and learning needs.
