How does the Cambridge Early Years curriculum map to England’s Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)?

We designed Cambridge Early Years to be taught in any international context through the medium of English with multilingual learners. It provides learning statements for children from ages 3 to 6.


The Early Years Foundation Stages (EYFS) is designed to be used with children from 0-5 whose first language is English and with children living in England with English as an additional language.


Please see alignment by age in the table below:


Age EYFS Cambridge Early Years
0 to 3 Birth to three Not applicable
3 to 4 3 and 4-year-olds EY1
4 to 5 Reception EY2
