Early Education for 3 Year Olds

Summary (optional)
start content

The period between the ages of 3 – 7 was known as the Foundation Phase, and this was the statutory curriculum for all children within this age group.  As Welsh Government implement the new Curriculum for Wales the use of the term ‘Foundation Phase’ will be removed. This reflects that the curriculum is now a 3-16 continuum without stages or phases.

Foundation learning focuses on the pedagogical teaching and learning approaches which scaffold the learning and development for all children in the early years. This reflects the importance of this period of learning..

Early Education can be delivered in schools or funded non-maintained settings and children are eligible to receive early education following their third birthday..
