The Government has published an updated version of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to take effect from 1 September
2014. This follows the Government’s response to the consultation on ‘The Regulation of Childcare’ which was published on 13 February 2014.
The 2014 version of the EYFS simply reflects those changes which apply to some of the areas within Section 3 on Safeguarding and Welfare. There have been no changes to the areas of learning and development themselves (including the early learning goals).
The 2014 EYFS can be downloaded from our website.
We have also produced a summary of changes.
