From September 2021 the new Early Years Foundation Stage comes into force, including changes to the early learning goals, and Early Years Managers need to follow it.
The framework is changing to help improve the outcomes of children at age 5 years, particularly in language and literacy, and as an Early Years Manager, you play a crucial role in this.
To help you implement the changes to the EYFS, we are developing comprehensive professional development training.
