Early Learning Consultancy can provide informed, expert training and support for responding to the revised EYFS.
- We have been involved in developing the new framework and writing the revised Development Matters guidance material.
- We have produced lively presentations which bring the changes to life, along with a hands-on interactive model to help practitioners and parents see the dynamic nature of the elements of the EYFS in action, including the Characteristics of effective learning and the Prime and Specific areas of learning and development.
