New Early Years Foundation Curriculum
Yesterday saw the launch of the government's new statutory guidance for the Early Years Foundation Stage. The framework, which comes into effect in September 2008, is intended to build on and replace the current Birth to Three Matters guidance, Foundation Stage for three and four year olds, and national day-care standards. Initial reactions to the guidance have been mixed, with some accusing the government of using a "tickbox approach."
