WISERD researchers provide annual report on the evaluation during its first year and provide a summary of the research findings from Stage I.
The Foundation Phase is the statutory curriculum for all 3 to 7 years old children in Wales in both maintained and non-maintained settings. It is based on the principle that early years’ provision should offer a sound foundation for future learning through a developmentally appropriate curriculum.
The approach places great emphasis on children learning by doing. Young children will be given more opportunities to gain first hand experiences through play and active involvement rather than by completing exercises in books.
