EYMP 2: Promote learning and development in the early years. Unit reference L/600/9782 Level 3 Credit value 5 GLH 40 Unit aim: To prepare the learner to work with children in supporting their learning and development within the relevant early years frameworks within the UK Home Nations. The unit assesses competence in planning to meet children’s needs and providing and supporting learning and development activities. 2. What are the documented outcomes for children that form part of the relevant early years framework and how are they assessed and recorded? The aim of the EYFS is to ensure that all children- notwithstanding their background, gain access to quality and consistent early year’s education. To make this possible, a series of documented outcomes is given for each of the seven areas of learning and development of the EYFS. These outcomes are called the Early Learning Goals. These goals are important as they form the building blocks for children’s later education and they make available the basis for planning and learning throughout the EYFS. The aim is that each child can meet the goals by the end of their reception year. However, some children would have exceeded the goals whilst others may still be working towards the goals by the end of the EYFS. The seven arears of learning and development mentioned above are: Communication and language- This is about the child listening and attention, understanding, and speaking. Physical development- How children gain control of their bodies, use equipment’s successfully and how they learn to use equipment. Personal, Social and Emotional development- How children understand who they are and what they can do, understand themselves in relation to others and understand their feelings as well as others. Literacy- Ability to read, write, speak and listen
