The Institute of Education says that there is huge support for the Early Years Foundation Stage among early years practitioners following a study carried out by the Government to assess the popularity of EYFS among the groups of people working within the framework. It seems the majority of people who work with children are very happy with the framework and the guidance that the EYFS provides. Great changes are not required.
The Areas of Learning and Development were seen as largely appropriate although teachers did note that the focus seemed to be on numeracy, literary and communication rather than social, personal and emotional goals.
Assessing children, especially the younger ones, was also seen as difficult and following development of each child was not always deemed appropriate.
We hope that for all childminders, services such as ToucanLearn help! If you aren't already signed up to our EYFS activity programme, sign up FREE now!
