Foundation Stage

The 7 areas of learning and development – a guide for parents


 

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) has seven areas of learning and development which have been produced by the English government and Early Years Professionals for the use by all Early Years providers, FS1 and FS2.

We use the areas of learning and development when we observe, assess and plan for your individual child’s needs.  The areas of learning and development make sure that we are constantly challenging your child and helping them to develop and succeed.

There are 7 areas of learning and they are split into 2 parts:

  1. The 3 prime areas – which are for all children and will always be the main focus of planning and specifically for children under 3.
  2. The 4 specific areas – which are mostly used for the older children, but are also relevant for younger children.

These are the 3 prime areas: (Click below for clearer image)
