This book will ensure that you know the changes to the EYFS framework, coming into force in September 2012. It gives you practical help and guidance on how to implement the changes and the requirements of the EYFS and will be of particular use to managers and practitioners in early years settings where the EYFS is delivered.
This revised guide explains what each of the key elements of the new framework means in practice, and includes examples of how the areas of learning and development have been reorganised and can be covered for each group.
The EYFS in practice comes in a format that is highly accessible to help you find what you need to know about the new guidance as easily as possible.
