Introduction to Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage, commonly referred to as the EYFS is a framework that all Early Years providers, including childminders, must follow.
This course aims to provide a gentle introduction to the expectations of the Early Years Foundation Stage and it can also act as a refresher for those wanting to update their knowledge. It will introduce you to some of the key documents and legislation that relate to Early Years providers, the process for registering with Ofsted and the various policies and procedures that need to be in place. It also covers learning and development requirements, how to observe and assess the progress of children in your care and the safeguarding and welfare requirements laid out in the EYFS Framework.

The best training is always having a tutor in front of you with their presentation, so that’s how our online courses are made! The tutor is “green-screened” with the presentation, photos and videos put in afterwards. The courses are then build into modules with question banks and minimum scores applied. The certifying body then views it and agrees to put their name to it and then you have the chance to take part in the training. Assuming you are successful, your certificate is available for download at the end.
