Collins International Foundation and Foundation Plus

Provide a firm foundation at early-year stage in English, maths and science in preparation for primary education.

About the series

Collins International Foundation and Foundation Plus is an early-years programme for English, maths and science that is designed to be used for the two years leading up to the first year of full primary education. The course introduces young children to maths, English and science concepts in an age-appropriate way through topic-based discovery and activity-based learning. Careful progression ensures children develop the skills they need to be ready to learn in their first year of primary and beyond.

Browse the collection

Schools can opt to use one, two or all three subjects for a comprehensive KG package. Each level comprises Activity Books, supported by a carefully selected collection of colourful stimulus materials in the Reading Anthology and Teacher's Guide. The materials in Foundation Plus build on what is covered in Foundation to ensure that all students will be fully prepared for the learning ahead.
The resources have been developed in consultation with expert practitioners to ensure ease of use in the classroom and to support children following a range of early years curricula, in preparation for their first year of primary education in an international school.
