Learning is planned using the Foundation Phase Framework for Children's Learning for 3 - 7 years olds in Wales and incorporates the National Literacy and Numeracy Framework.

The Foundation Phase is the statutory curriculum for all 3 - 7 year olds in Wales.  It encourages children to be creative and imaginative and makes learning more enjoyable and more effective. The Foundation Phase has 7 areas of learning which are delivered through practical activities and active learning experiences both indoors and outdoors.

The areas of learning are; personal and social development, well-being and cultural diversity; language, literacy and communication skills; mathematical development; Welsh language development; knowledge and understanding of the world; physical development;  creative development

At the centre of the framework lies the holistic development of children and their skills, building on previous learning experiences and knowledge. through their play, the children practice and consolidate their learning, play with ideas, experiment, take risks, solve problems and make decisions. First hand experiences allow the children to develop an understanding of themselves and the world in which they live.
