Early Years Foundation Stage

Description

Mike Baker explains what the new Early Years Foundation Stage Framework will mean for early years practitioners when it becomes statutory in September 2008.

He details what you need to know about the new framework and how it will affect the daily work of birth-to-five settings.

Ruth Pimentel is responsible for implementing the new framework, stressing that it builds on existing best practice to help teachers and childminders to provide the best start for children, whilst nursery school headteacher Julian Grenier warns against wrongly interpreting the framework as encouraging "tick-box teaching".
