The Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is the statutory framework in England and Wales that sets the standards that all Early Years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well and are kept healthy and safe. It promotes teaching and learning and gives children the broad range of knowledge and skills that provide the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

IPIE will use this framework with adaptations to suit an international clientele. In addition to this, we will be drawing heavily from the document “Development Matters” produced by Early Education (formerly British Association for Early Childhood Education).
The EYFS framework has four themes:
A Unique Child
Positive Relationships
Enabling Environments
Learning & Development
The principles that inform these themes work together to support the development of toddlers and young children.
“ Children develop quickly in the early years, and early years practitioners aim to do all they can to help children have the best possible start in life. Children have a right, spelled out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, to provision which enables them to develop their personalities, talents and abilities irrespective of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, learning difficulties, disabilities or gender. ”
