On Wednesday, the EYFS review recommended that the EYFS should remain mandatory, but be simpler and less bureaucratic.
In light of the recommendations, many industry professionals have formed their own responses and suggestions about how the review could change their approach to early years.
Early Years Professional Dawn Burnham, who recently held a live webcast on the EYFS topic ‘Parents as Partners‘, has shared her thoughts on the review;
National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) urged nurseries to ensure that staff had the skills to develop strong partnerships with parents during difficult times.
NDNA highlighted how nurseries understand the value of working with families so that children can gain the very most from their time at nursery and learning was extended into the home.
However, the organisation added that it was vital that practitioners are also equipped with the skills to support parents during challenging times such as financial difficulty, separation or bereavement.
