Like all Ofsted registered childminders, I work within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). The EYFS is informed by the Every Child Matters Agenda. This is a Government initiative designed to give every child the best possible start in life.
Every Child Matters has 5 agenda items…
A healthy child.
A safe child.
Supporting children to enjoy and achieve.
Helping children to make a positive contribution.
Supporting every child to achieve economic well being.
When I write my policies and procedures, parent permission forms, portfolio and when I write my Self Evaluation Form (SEF), I use these agendas as a reference. These will also be featured in my Ofsted report.
