Opening a childcare setting

All reception, nursery classes, day nurseries, childminders, playgroups, pre-schools and after school clubs that accept children within the age range birth to five years old have to follow the early year’s foundation stage (EYFS) statutory framework. The EYFS ensures children’s safety and that they learn through play.
