The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is built around four principles:

  • Children Learn and Develop in different ways and at different Rates

In terms of Learning and Development, there are seven areas.

There are also four specific areas through which the three prime areas are strenghtened and applied. These are:

  • Literacy
  • Mathematics
