A new online service has been launched to support private, voluntary and independent early years settings and childminders to effectively implement the revised EYFS that becomes statutory from September 2021. This features a wide range of resources, videos of good practice and links to inspirational websites.
DfE has published a new guide for parents, produced by Sheringham Nursery School and Children’s Centre. What to expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage (formerly ‘What to expect when’) guides parents through what to expect with their child’s development. It aligns with the new Development Matters to help practitioners engage with parents about their child’s development.
DfE has also published a new guide produced by Pen Green Children’s Centre. A celebratory approach to working with children with SEND – giving additional support in the Early Years (formerly 'A Celebratory Approach to SEND assessment in the Early Years') helps practitioners who may be supporting children who require additional help or children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
