Yes you do. While the child is in the EYFS you need to follow it with them, no matter how many (or how few) hours they are with you. A full day is plenty of time to get into it.

You don't have to do masses of stuff, but you should still be building up a picture of what they can do now and how they progress.

I have my friends little boy just 3 half hrs a week, he's 3, I like that age as you can do more planned activaties with them like baking and crafts. I tend to do one small planned activate a week, we are having a fire drill today so lots of play with fire engines, hats books. This will go in his book towards EYFS

One of mine comes 3 hours a week. I was advised I should have 1 ob for each part of the EYFS over the space of a year.
