Foundation Phase Toolkit

The Foundation Phase is a holistic developmental curriculum for all 3 to 7-year-olds and is based on the needs of the individual child to meet their stage of development. It is a play-based curriculum which places greater emphasis on experiential learning and use of the outdoors.

This booklet is intended to be used as a toolkit to support practitioners in developing ideas for visits. The methods used here are such that people could adapt them if the book or theme they choose to use is different. The toolkit is intended to be a lasting reference for those who attended the workshops. It is also a source of ideas and guidance for those who were unable to do so, but would like to get some newideas for working with the Foundation Phase.
