This new edition of the 'The EYFS: Am I getting it right?' aims to help practitioners answer the question 'How do I know I am doing the EYFS?' by using reflection and self-evaluation techniques. The majority of practitioners are keen to comply with the EYFS requirements but need reassurance. By using the simple questionnaires provided in this book, practitioners will be able to evaluate the effectiveness of their practice, their environment and how well they know the children they work with. Alongside this, the book aims to enable practitioners to further develop and improve what goes on in their setting on a day-to-day basis.
