EYFS guidance: Improving Quality in Early Years - factsheet
Improving quality and raising standards in the Early Years: A directory of resources for local authorities.

The first edition of this directory was published in 2007. This updated version is designed, just like the
first one, to support local authorities (LAs) in fulfilling their duty under the Childcare Act 2006 to work
with their Primary Care Trust, Strategic Health Authority and Jobcentre Plus partners to improve the
outcomes of all young children from birth to the age of five in their area and to reduce inequalities
between them.

This directory aims to complement statutory guidance and is particularly focused on materials to
help LAs work with providers, practitioners and teachers in early years settings and primary schools,
to improve the quality and to raise the levels of achievement in the EYFS. The materials are already
being used by many LAs and can support the implementation and embedding of the EYFS as well as
helping to meet the Early Years Outcomes Duty (EYOD) targets.
