Teaching Job Vacancies – What Is The EYFS?

Teaching job vacancies cover all aspects of teaching, including teaching at EYFS level. EYFS stands for Early Years Foundation Stage and is one of the most important levels of teaching in a child’s educational life. What is the EYFS and would it suit you? It’s not for everyone, but it could be for you.

EYFS covers children from birth to 5 years old and includes pre-schools and nurseries. In a school, this is one of many special teaching jobs that relates to reception classes. Reception class is the first year of full time education, and as such can be an extremely challenging environment to work in. It can also be wonderfully rewarding. Sometimes, children in reception class may never have been away from their parents before. This is because nursery and pre-school classes are not compulsory, and some parents may choose not to send their child for a variety of reasons. For these children, starting school can be a daunting and confusing experience. Others may never have been in large classes before, and others still may have problems with basic functions such as toilet training and using a knife and fork. Some will be just four years old, and the youngest in the class may not turn five until the end of the summer term. In these kinds of teaching vacancies, it is essential to have a combination of patience, discipline, authority and teaching ability. You must also be able to impart in parents the confidence that their child is safe and happy at school.
