The EYFS framework is changing and there are new statutory requirements for September 2021. There is a much greater emphasis on curriculum design because, in the past, some schools have been using the Early Learning Goals and Development Matters as their curriculum. The new framework makes it clear that they are, in fact, your goals - not the curriculum that will help students to meet them. This highly practical, evidence-based course will help you to plan a rich, well sequenced curriculum for children in Nursery and Reception.
