This website was launched on Monday April 7th, and is fully accessible only to EYPS professionals whose local authorities subscribe to the EYPSf scheme. Its purpose is to facilitate a national support network of Early Years Foundation Stage professionals with EYP status. If you are not currently a registered member, and would like to know more please send a message using the contact details below.

If you have been sent here by your local authority team, Welcome! And here are a few pointers to get you started:

  • First of all, use the instructions you've been given to register. You can begin this by clicking the register link at top right of this screen, or by clicking here
  • Once you've registered you'll be able to read the discussions in the forum, or access the articles listed in this page and elsewhere.
  • Visit the information page of your authority (index here) whenever you want to reach your own local network support forum, or alternatively go to the main forum index page and scroll towards the bottom of the page to find the forum list.
  • Thirty eight local authorities are currently members of the EYPSf so don't forget to use the main forum areas for conversation with your colleagues from around the country.

We hope you find this website a useful, continually changing and evolving resource that will become an integral part of the way you work. Should you have any suggestions for additional features, please pop into this forum area and let us know - we'll be pleased to hear from you!
