EYMP1-1.1-Explain the legal status and principles of the relevant early years framework, and how national and local guidance materials are used in settings EYMP2-1.1-Explain each of the areas of learning and development and how these are important The EYFS is a stage of children's development from birth to five years. The EYFS Framework describes how early years practitioners should work with children and their families to support their development and learning. It describes how your child should be kept safe and cared for and how all concerned can make sure that your child achieves the most that they can in their earliest years of life. It is based on four important principles:

A Unique Child
Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Positive Relationships
Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. Enabling Environments
The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning. Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Developments are equally important and interconnected. All these areas play a big part in all the paperwork we do for the children including their learning journeys. This is what they take with them to primary school so show teachers what ability they are at and what they have achieved already. In the back of their learning journey there are links called development matters. This shows you what age group that child is at and what they can achieve. This helps us show the ability of each individual child. It also helps us to plan for that child as well so we know we can get them to achieve higher every time.

Each has its own set of learning goals attached that its hoped children will reach by the end of their EYFS. The areas are entwined and interdependent; rarely will one work in isolation from others. The specific areas involve making eye contact or mark making, communication is involved depending on what activity is occurring, creative and physical aspects are involved and can be evidenced through a setting inside or outside and further, more reason...
