The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage 2014

The framework is for:

  • school leaders
  • school staff
  • childcare providers
  • childminders

It relates to:

  • maintained schools
  • non-maintained schools
  • independent schools
  • academies and free schools
  • nurseries
  • private nursery schools
  • pre-schools/playgroups
  • childminding

The framework:

  • sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well
  • ensures children are kept healthy and safe
  • ensures that children have the knowledge and skills they need to start school

This framework replaced the EYFS framework 2012 on 1 September 2014. The learning and development requirements remained unchanged, as did the assessment requirements, but several aspects of the safeguarding and welfare requirements were amended.
