What is the Foundation Phase? - Wales Pre-school Providers Association The Foundation Phase is a developmental curriculum for 3 to 7-year-olds in Wales. It encourages children to be creative, imaginative and to have fun and makes learning more enjoyable and more effective. Children will be given more opportunities to explore the world around them and understand how things work by taking part in practical activities that are relevant to their developmental stage.
