The EYFS is the stage of education for children from birth to the end of the Reception year. It is based on the recognition that children learn best through play and active learning. There are seven areas of learning in total, three prime areas and four specific areas. The prime areas of learning are Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Communication and Language and Physical Development. These are crucial for developing children's curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. The specific areas of learning are Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
Development Matters is a document provided by Early Education that supports Early Years Practitioners in providing quality education in the early years. The EYFS team uses Development Matters as part of daily observation, assessment and planning: https://www.foundationyears.org.uk/files/2012/03/Development-Matters-FINAL-PRINT-AMENDED.pdf
