Back to EYFS Questions

The Birth to 5 Matters Guidance is a non-statutory document produced by the Early Years Coalition. This means that it was researched and written by members of the early years sector for the best interests of the sector – with outcomes for children at its heart.

It is guidance for your practice that puts trust back in practitioners own judgement for a child’s learning. There is an emphasis on practitioners spending more time with the children and less time recording, collating and analysing data unnecessarily.
