All content is available under the Open Government Licence v3.

Areas of learning Your child will mostly be taught through games and play. Assessments Your child’s progress will be reviewed when they’re between 2 and 3 by an early years practitioner or health visitor. Their class teacher will assess them at the end of the school year when they turn 5. The assessment is based on classroom observation – your child won’t be tested. It uses the early learning goals, which can be found in the early years framework.
