Course Code: ABC008
Award Level 4 - Similar difficulty to NVQ Level 4
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is a curriculum framework that has been compulsory in all child care settings in the UK since 2008 as stipulated by the Child Care Act 2006.
This course helps you to develop the knowledge and understanding of how to implement the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum and manage all aspects of children’s learning and development from birth to the age of 5.
As such, this course is particularly suited to those wishing to set up their Child Care business, and for those wishing to work in a supervisory or management-level position in the Early Years environment.
This Early Years Level 4 course will cover aspects of the EYFS, enabling you to:
A child-centred approach in the early years
An enabling environment for children and families
Communication and positive relationships within the early years
Early education for children
Health, safety and well-being of children in the early years
Leadership in the early years
You will be assessed through a series of written assignments, which are submitted to your tutor for marking. No external examination is required.
You may start at any time and have a full year to complete your studies. We suggest that the course will take approximately 80 hours to complete. This is more than enough time to give you flexibility and work at your own pace without the pressure of deadlines.
The course is designed for study by distance learning at home or at work. Students will receive all course materials by post, as well as tutor support by email.
At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement by ABC Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the details of all the units you have completed as part of your course).
The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards’ Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Open Study College has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet certain quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to an Ofqual regulated qualification but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills towards regulated qualifications in the future. The unit summary can be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this sector. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of difficulty involved in successful completion by the learner.
The course itself has been designed by Open Study College to meet specific learners’ or employers’ requirements. ABC Awards’ endorsement involves a robust and rigorous quality audit by external inspectors to ensure quality is consistently met. A regular review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

I wanted to study Early Years Level 4 because I wanted to start a nursery and needed to learn about the legislations and how to manage and run the early years setting. The best thing about studying with the Open Study College is that you can learn in your own time and complete the course as fast or as slow as you want. Tutor support has been helpful so far. The study material has everything so you dont need extra books, just extra research online and links to websites are provided. I am enjoying my course and would recommend it to a friend. I started my course on the 13th April 2015, there are 6 units to complete.
