The plan sets out a national approach to continuously improve the way in which the Foundation Phase curriculum for three- to seven-year-olds is implemented and delivered in our schools and nurseries.

The plan has been developed with a wide group of stakeholders under the guidance of an expert group and sets out key actions for aspects on which research has shown us we need to focus.

Many of the fundamental approaches used in the delivery of the Foundation Phase, including learning through experience, will extend across the breadth of the new curriculum. It is important, therefore, that we continue to improve teaching and learning in the Foundation Phase so that we can build the application of the new curriculum on a solid basis of good practice.
