During their first five years, children will grow, learn and develop at a greater rate that at any other point in their lives. That is why the Early Years are so important. But children do not grow and develop at the same rate.
4Children have produced a guide for parents and carers to help them find out more about how children learn and develop in relation to the Early Years Foundation Stage. This booklet also includes examples of ideas and tips in supporting your child's learning and development.
