Understanding and Working with the EYFS. In order to fully meet the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) it is important to be familiar with it and understand what is expected.

This course forms part of our Childminder Introductory Training package. Please note that this course is NOT sufficient on its own to cover introductory training requirements. Step by step details of how to use the learning and development requirements regarding observing children, writing observations and linking these to the EYFS is covered in our Recording Children's Development course.

This course has been produced particularly for Registered Childminders in the UK who use the Early Years Foundation Stage but is also suitable for all other early year’s practitioners.

This course:

  • gives a step by step guide through the EYFS document and explains what is needed at each step specifically for registered childminders

  • gives top tips and explains what Ofsted are looking for in your childminding setting

  • is particularly useful for pre-registration and new childminders but also useful for those who would like the EYFS requirements explaining in more detail

This course is one of the five modules included in the complete online introductory course but is also available to buy separately.
