The article focuses on the concerns by the Open EYE campaign on the effectiveness of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), a regulatory framework which sets the learning and development goals of early years providers in Great Britain. It cites the concerns that the framework's literacy goals had not been addressed and that the goals for reading, writing and punctuation should be reviewed. It also mentions the Open Eye's concern that the framework's exemption process is too complicated.
