EYFS Statutory Framework
In Early Years, we follow the 'Early Years Foundation Stage'. This is a compulsory framework that all Early Years settings must follow in England. It highlights the 7 different areas of learning that children will explore during their first years at Highfield.
What are Early Learning Goals?
Early Learning Goals are the goals or targets for children to achieve at the end of their reception. year. They will be working towards these goals throughout the EYFS.
