Updates to guidance

Early years and childcare closures guidance

This guidance for local authorities, early years settings and childminders about childcare provision following the outbreak of coronavirus has been updated to include:

  • Proposals for temporary flexibility on a small number of requirements in the Early Years Foundation Stage statutory framework. These proposals are subject to parliamentary agreement and, until then, the current EYFS requirements continue to apply.
  • New content on the Government’s position on personal protective equipment for early years staff.
