Between July and September 2011, the Government consulted on a revised Early Years Foundation Stage framework, responding to the recommendations of an independent review by Dame Clare Tickell. The Department for Education has now launched a new consultation that provides a further opportunity to comment on the Government’s proposed changes to some parts of the learning and development requirements in the revised EYFS framework: the early learning goals; and the educational programmes. Further details on the consultation are available on the Department for Education’s website.
