Daycare Trust, in partnership with Westminster Briefing, is organising a policy and practice briefing which is hosted by the House Magazine. Delegates at this event will examine the reformed Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and consider the implications for local authorities, early years providers, parents, teachers and policy makers.
Following the Tickell Review, the government undertook a major consultation on the Early Years Foundation Stage, publishing its response in December. The revised framework was published in April 2012 and will be implemented from September 2012. The new framework will focus on a slimmed down curriculum for 0-5-year-olds, with an emphasis on getting children ready for school. The proposals will have a radical effect on the shape and pattern of early years provision.
Delegates at this Policy and Practice Westminster Briefing will examine the reformed EYFS and consider the implications for local authorities, early years providers, parents, teachers and policy makers. Key issues to be discussed include:
This event will allow you to engage with the department for education and other key experts, in understanding the new EYFS framework. You will participate in a number of interactive sessions, with case study examples focusing on how the new EYFS will work and what this will mean for you and your setting. For further details please see the agenda.
Delegates will be drawn from across the education and children’s services’ sectors, including representatives from local authorities, early years settings, primary schools, the voluntary sector and private providers, children’s centre staff and child minders, training providers, professional associations.
