Early Years Record (Compliance Software)

Early Years Record is a groundbreaking software product to help you prepare, audit and improve.


  • Are you meeting the legal requirements of the EYFS?
  • Are you prepared for an Ofsted inspection?
  • Do you use best practice in early years?

Inspectors will make a judgement on the effectiveness of leadership and management by evaluating the extent to which leaders, manager and governors make sure that arrangements to protect children meet all statutory and other government requirements, promote their welfare and prevent radicalism and extremism

The traffic lights give you an at-a-glance view of exactly how your setting is performing, and where improvements need to be made. Alerts and notifications ensure your registration, staff training, and procedures are kept up-to-date.

It allows you to keep track of your compliance with legislation and guidance – including the most recent revision of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
