The Foundation Phase (3 - 7 years)
In our school the Foundation Phase is about enhancing the learning experiences which enable children to be creative, imaginative and to have fun whilst learning. Children have more opportunities to explore the world around them and to understand how things work through engaging in relevant practical activities which are fun and enjoyable and relevant to their developmental ages.
Six Areas of Learning
The Foundation Phase has six Areas of Learning, where stimulating structured play activities are woven into the learning experience. The curriculum is built around these six areas to support and encourage every child’s personal, social, emotional, physical and intellectual well-being and development. Emphasis is placed on developing children’s skills across the Areas of Learning , to provide a suitable and integrated approach to young children’s learning.
