The links at the top of this page can help you audit your ICT across the EYFS principles. The EYFS is based around four Themes. A Unique Child - Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured. Positive Relationships - Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person. Enabling Environments - The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children's development and learning. Learning and Development - Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected. Each Principle is supported by four Commitments. Click on a commitment to see both how technology can underpin this commitment and how the commitment can inform ICT practice.

Early Years Maths Digital technology and the early years | National Literacy Trust Technology can play a role in supporting early communication, language and literacy. It can offer new learning opportunities, through ebooks, apps, and even video calling. We strongly advise that, just like a book, technology is used as a tool for learning and play, rather than as a replacement for adult interaction. Our research shows that, when used appropriately, technology can be an important route in to reading for certain groups of children, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds and boys. For parents Our Words for Life website has advice and tips for parents on how to use technology with their child in the early years.Our Literacy Apps website also helps parents find the right apps to help children develop good communication and literacy skills. For early years practitioners Along with these downloadable resources, we have created these videos on using technology in early years settings.
