EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage)
There are seven areas of learning and development that must shape educational programmes in early years settings. All areas are important and inter-connected. Three areas are particularly crucial for igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning, and for building their capacity to learn, form relationships and thrive.
These prime areas are:
- Communication and Language Development
- Physical Development
- Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Providers must also support children in four specific areas, through which the three prime areas are strengthened and applied. The specific areas are:
- Understanding the World
- Expressive Arts and Design
