Join Our Growing Community

Subscribing to the Foundation Stage Forum costs £20 (plus VAT) per year. This gives the member full access to the forums and to the growing number of articles and other resources in the forum. But, perhaps most importantly, it gives them membership of a fast growing community and support network of professionals involved in this most captivating stage of a child’s development - the Foundation Stage.

The Foundation Stage Forum was launched to counter the isolation felt by many practitioners and teachers in Early Years education, and to provide a home to come to, with problems, with exhilarating experiences, or just for some quiet reading. This objective has been met with huge enthusiasm, and is best exemplified by viewing our Lessons From Geese video.

LA Membership Scheme

The FSF operates a scheme whereby the early years teams working in Local Authorities can purchase membership for all the EYFS providers in their area for a single annual payment. This scheme includes a closed local forum and the means to contact your own providers directly via email. If you belong to an organisation which may be interested in participating, please contact us for more information.

Many Local Authorities are paying for their providers to subscribe to the Foundation Stage Forum.
