Birth to 5 Matters is guidance produced by the sector, for the sector, to support the introduction of the revised Early Years Foundation Stage in England in 2021.
What is Birth to 5 Matters?
Birth to 5 Matters is non-statutory guidance that practitioners may use to support their implementation of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage, which sets out the legal requirements for delivering education for children from birth to 5 in England.
Birth to 5 Matters builds on previous non-statutory guidance for the EYFS. It includes updated material to reflect research evidence and outlines the foundations of good practice. It offers information and guidance for practitioners to consider how the Principles of the EYFS can be brought to life in their setting. New sections on play, characteristics of effective learning, and self-regulation help practitioners to reflect on and develop their own pedagogy.
