Under-fives to be subjected to 500 developmental targets - Times Online

The new Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS), which becomes law in the autumn, lays down up to 500 developmental milestones between birth and primary school and requires under-fives to be assessed on writing, problem solving and numeracy skills. It will apply to about 25,000 nurseries, plus registered childminders in England.

I was going to say it was absolute madness until I noticed the next headline..Recruitment drive as mentally ill teachers asked back to school - that about sums it up.


Think I've just gone numb.
