The Government highlights how it wants to secure the very best quality services for families and shows a clear commitment to continuing with a universal free nursery education offer for three and four year olds and an expansion of places for two year olds. The Government has also published the proposed slimmed down Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework, following Claire Tickell's review, and early years providers are being invited to share their views on the proposed changes. The consultation period ends on 30 September 2011 and any changes will be implemented from September 2012. The proposed changes include a number of new areas such as nurseries undertaking 'developmental checks' on children. It also proposes to reduce the number of Early Learning Goals (ELGs) from 69 to 17.
