  • EYFS Development Statements

    At Dundonald Early Years Practitioners use Development Matters to support the early learning of young children as part of daily observation, assessment and planning. It can also be used at points during the EYFS as a guide to making best-fit summative judgements. The age/stage bands overlap because these are not fixed age boundaries but suggest a typical range of development. When using Development Matters it is however important to remember that babies, toddlers and young children develop at their own rates and in their own ways. 

    The EYFS development statements and their order are not necessary steps for every child and should not be used as checklists.
