Early Years Foundation Stage consultation


The Department for Education are seeking views on proposed changes to requirements in the early years foundation stage (EYFS). 

They are proposing changes to the EYFS framework to make it more practical for different types of EYFS providers. Their aims are to: 

  • offer providers more flexibility 
  • reduce known burdens 
  • enable practitioners to provide high-quality early education 
  • make it easier for practitioners to join the workforce and progress their careers

The consultation is open until 26th July 2023 for you to add your views about the proposed regulatory changes
