Guidance to your Child's Development and Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage

In this booklet from 4Children (supported by the Department for Education), your child’ s first five years are divided up into six age bands to highlight what you might notice your child doing at these points.

Please click here for What to Expect, When? A guide to development and learning.

Please remember: every child is different! Children do not grow and develop at the same rate. After each age band there are some ideas and tips as to how you can help your child’s learning and development.
