We want to help you as a parent to find out more about how your child is learning and developing during their first five years, in relation to the EYFS. Children develop more rapidly during the first five years of their lives than at any other time. We will provide guidance that has been written to help you as a parent know what to expect during these vitally important years by focusing on the seven areas of learning and development which are covered in the EYFS.

Children learn and develop through playing, exploring, being active, creative and being asked questions to help their thinking.

As you know, being a parent is very special and amazing as you watch your child grow up. It can also have challenges. We hope our guidance will help you to know how your child is developing so you know what to expect, remembering that all children are different.
