Supporting Reading in the EYFS

Reading is a fundamental part of a child’s early development. Whilst developing a child’s phonological awareness is vital, so is developing a love of reading. Ofsted’s New Inspection Framework also places more emphasis on reading than ever before. This training will:

  • Increase your understanding of Ofsted expectations for reading in the early years
  • Develop your understanding of early reading skills
  • Explore ways to enhance reading provision within your setting

About this course

Early years environments are a unique space where children can learn through discovery, exploration and play, and reading should play a pivotal part in this development. Parents also have a vital role to play.

This short course will:

  • Support you in finding the balance between early phonics instruction and developing a love of reading
  • Provide you with practical ways to promote a love of reading in your setting
  • Suggest ways to engage parents in reading and sharing books with their children


This course is appropriate for EYFS.

  • Early years practitioners
  • Early years leads
  • Staff new to the early years
