How does the new 2012 EYFS affect Childminders?

It is hoped that the new EYFS will mean less paperwork!  However, in real terms there is still a considerable amount of work for Childminders to undertake to ensure that all policies, procedures, forms and developmental monitoring incorporate the imposed changes in order to maintain/achieve a good or outstanding status.

Ofsted want to see that Childminders are working effectively with parents and professionals.  This means showing how we work with other settings that minded children may attend and support agencies. 

The focus will be on three prime areas of learning (communication and language; physical development; personal, social and emotional development) and four specific areas (literacy, mathematics, understanding the world; expressive arts and design).

There are now 17 early learning goals for children to work towards instead of 69, simplifying the assessment at age 5.

Childminders will also now need to carry out a progress check at age two to be provided to parents.

There is also more emphasis on the balance between child and adult led activities.

Numerous changes to the welfare requirements have also been made  which for many will mean reviewing and amending polices, procedures and forms.

Childminding Paperwork's new EYFS pack will make implementing the changes easy as we have done the work for you!  The pack includes:
