This is the first of the EYFS Principles
Every child is a competent learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident
It is made up of four commitments:
Babies and children develop in individual ways and at varying rates. Every area of
development – physical, cognitive, linguistic, spiritual, social and emotional –
is equally important.

The diversity of individuals and communities is valued and respected. No child or
family is discriminated against.
Young children are vulnerable. They develop resilience when their physical and psychological
well-being is protected by adults.
Health and Well-being
Children’s health is an integral part of their emotional, mental, social, environmental
and spiritual well-being and is supported by attention to these aspects.
