    Relax! The areas of learning will become second nature once you get started. Do you have children of your own? Just use a typical day playing with them and practice matching up what they are doing against the Areas- you will see that there are massive overlaps (one activity can cover all areas!) and over the course of a week you can easily cover all areas. You can have a print-out at the inspection and refer to it... see my reply to your other post x

    I don’t really understand your title ‘ who opened up recently?’

    In order for you to be successful in promoting teaching and learning to help young children prepare for school, Ofsted has set standards that all providers must meet.

    These cover taken from the governments childminding pre reg briefing)
     the early learning goals – knowledge, skills and understanding that young children should achieve by the end of the Reception year in which they reach the age of five
     the educational programmes – matters, skills and processes that are required to be taught to young children
     the assessment arrangements – arrangements for assessing young children to ascertain their achievements.

    Whilst you may not need to know ‘off by heart’ strands of each learning area, you do, I think, need to know what they are enough to be able to give an example of an activity and why you would be offering it in your setting using the language of the EYFS.
    The more you plan and explore on your pre reg courses the more you become familiar. It’s not a matter of knowing the words by heart it’s that you can plan activities throughout the day / adjust activities to the individual to ensure that all areas are being covered and met by the children, so a good knowledge of the expectations is vital.

    I am sure once you complete your Early Years training you will understand and therefore know it all much better.
    Good luck.

    Your course should prepare you for answering the inspector's questions - and your assessor should advise you as part of your course planning to prepare you for your pre-reg inspection.

    I am an assessor for the preparing to work in home-based childcare course - if you need any support please ask
