    Default Updated e-books for EYFS 2012

    I have been busy updating all my e-books, mini e-books and illustrated e-books for the revised EYFS

    They are nearly ready to be sent out... I am just finishing a few little bits and bobs.

    I want to offer my wonderful customers who have already bought e-books from me a free update - with a small postage charge if they need to be sent on CD - to say thank you for your custom and support over the last few years.

    The problem I have is when to release them ...

    If I release them too early and people start using them they will get into trouble if they have an inspection between now and September...

    If I release them too late you won't have time to put the new requirements into place before September...

    So... having bent Pauline's ear on the subject... she says I should let you guys decide!

    When do you think I should start sending them out?

    If they are ready then I would say now so we have chance to be reading and digesting before September

    Look forward to receiving whatever the decision

    PS Well done!

    I personally would like to have them sooner rather than later, that way I can get my head around your wonderful work and make sure I have things in place and ready for the change over in September.

    Again really appreciate the time and effort you have put into your ebooks and am grateful and honoured to know you as you are the knowledge Queen xxx

    I would say leave it to the individual - announce that they are ready and leave it to members to contact you and ask for the update.

    Well done though, it must have been a mammoth task updating everything.

    Miffy xx
    Keep smiling!

    I would send them sooner rather than later so everyone can prepare.

    Its everyone's own responsibility how they run their business and if they are daft enough to start the new EYFS too early then that is up to them if they get into trouble.

    Thank you Sarah

    Sarah we have been advised by our Early years that if we take any children on from July we should do their records according to the new framework because it is silly to do the old one for a month or so. Though the current children would not be swapped until September we will need to be able to prepare in advance for the changes.

    So for me the sooner the better

    Hi Sarah

    Definitely sooner rather than later. Need time to digest the information and get all the new paperwork ready and your e-books certainly help me to cut through the jargon!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you

    Sarah you are wonderful xx I don't know how you get your head round these things and then have the time to do all this. I would like them sooner rather than later cos obviously I have other things to get my head round too. Will have to have a check if I can to see which ones I got. xx Again many thanks for all your hard work xx

    I was told this earlier this week too, even said that as I had a new one starting now it might be worth considering just using the new EYFS for her, she only comes 1 day a week and I'm not due an inspection for at least 3 years

    Sooner the better for me too please

    I'd prefer them sooner rather than later please, maybe you could just put a warning on email not to implement yet, if people choose to ignore that warning then they have no-one to blame but themselves. x

    I think the sooner the better so the information can be read and digested, allowing time to make any necessary changes in readiness for September. Xx
