Early Years Foundation Stage

Finding and exploring young children's fascinations - Strengthening the quality of gifted and talented provision in the early years

This guidance draws on current research evidence and practitioner case studies to explore how each child's unique strengths, interests, aptitudes and passions can be recognised, celebrated and nurtured in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The guidance argues that very young children often possess sophisticated thinking skills and creativity that may not be recognised or valued by adults, and may therefore pass unnoticed.
