EYFS audit tool

Journey to Excellence - EYFS Audit Tools

Childcare providers should be able to discuss their evaluation of the setting with the inspector. Inspectors will ask staff about the quality of care and activities they provide, and how well the setting is meeting the learning needs of all children.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework Audit Tools provide a framework to support childminders and settings to reflect on current practices, identify strengths and priorities for improvement. It should be seen as a process of staff development and although initially it will be a focus for owners, leaders and managers it will eventually involve all adults working with the children in the setting.   

The audit tools have been written to support continuous quality improvement in line with the principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) Framework.
