EYFS Reforms – training for childminders

The Revised Early Years Foundation Stage will become statutory in September 2021.

The changes to the EYFS Statutory Framework are being made to improve the outcomes for children at age 5, particularly in early language and literacy as well as to reduce workload such as unnecessary paperwork, to enable you as practitioners to spend more time with the children that you care for.

To support the implementation of this, the Early Years and Childcare Service Advisory Team and the Babcock Early Years Consultancy Team are offering a series of virtual training events between April – June 2021. These events will aim to ensure that Devon schools, settings and childminders are briefed regarding key messages from the Department for Education and Ofsted and to support you to implement these changes.

At this stage you do not need to make any changes but you should be making plans to implement them from September 2021.
