What the Early Years Foundation Stage says

Early Years & Childcare

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) seeks to provide equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.

One of the EYFS’s overarching principles is that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
