Improving the quality and range of education and childcare from birth to 5 years
The early years foundation stage (EYFS) sets the statutory standards that all early years providers must meet. This includes all maintained schools, non-maintained schools, independent schools and all providers on the Early Years Register.

The EYFS aims to provide:
quality and consistency in all early years settings
:: a secure foundation for all children for good progress through school and life
:: partnerships between different practitioners
:: partnerships between parents or carers and practitioners
:: equality of opportunity for all children

A revised EYFS was published on 27 March 2012, which came into force on 1 September 2012. It aims to reduce burdens, including unnecessary regulation and paperwork, so professionals have more time to concentrate on supporting children.

An updated EYFS will come into effect on 1 September 2014. The changes will include amendments to the safeguarding and welfare requirements.
