Advantages of this course

It is ‘mandatory for all early years providers: maintained schools; non-maintained schools; independent schools; all providers on the Early Years Register; and all providers registered with and early years childminder agency.’ (EYFS September 2014)
  • The course introduces the themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and explains how they can be put into practice. Taking the themes of ‘A unique child’, ‘Positive relationships’, Enabling environments’, and ‘Learning and development’, links are offered to the official resources supporting EYFS and videos which give more information on the principles.
  • Additional activities encourage the learner to reflect on the learning
  • There is also suggested extra reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge
