Parent Guide to the EYFS

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Curriculum (2014) has 3 prime and 4 specific areas of learning:

Prime Areas

  • Personal Social and Emotional Development
  • Communication and Language
  • Physical Development


Specific areas

  • Literacy
  • Maths
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive arts and design 

The curriculum is delivered through topics that change each half term.  The children will take part in whole class, group and one to one adult led and child initiated learning activities. For the remainder of the time they have ‘free flow’. Play underpins all development and learning for young children. Most children play spontaneously, although some may need adult support, and it is through play that they develop intellectually, creatively, physically, socially and emotionally.  ‘Free flow’ provides opportunities for children to be active, independent learners and enhances all areas of learning. Observing children during their play provides the foundations for assessment in the Early Years.
