Very good book
I am a PGCE early years student and this book is excellent. It goes through all areas of the new EYFS and explains everything in detail. A must have book for those working in early years.

An early years essential!
Are you an early years practitioner? New to the workforce or an old hand? Either way this book is an absolute must. The revisions to the EYFS last year certainly left us wondering if our practise was supporting children’s development as well as we could be, we had many questions about how play and learning would now be linked under the new EYFS and we wanted information about the new areas of learning and how to strengthen our work with parents. This excellent book helped us to consider our practise and has given us all the up to date information we need. We have used the thinking, reflecting and doing sessions in our staff meetings to help all practitioners consider and understand some of the changes. If you are looking for a book to ‘shine the light’ on the revised EYFS and really help you decide what matters then this it! Very happy with purchase. Highly recommended.

Really helpful resource!
I have been reading the Revised EYFS in Practice in order to develop an awareness of the changes to the EYFS. I am a mum of two under the age of two with plans to change career to work as a Childminder. I have genuinely found this book to be accessible, well-written and very useful. The sections on parents, partnerships and home learning matters, positive relationships and learning + pedagogy were of particular interest to me. I would definitely recommend this book to those who work with children or who intend to and those who wish to have clarification of the changes to the EYFS.

A must-have resource
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anybody working with the new EYFS framework. I am a reception class teacher and I have found it really useful. There are helpful examples and case studies, as well as interesting and thought provoking information on play and pedagogy. This is a must-have resource for eyfs practitioners!
