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.
The engaging and brightly illustrated Activity Books provide age-appropriate practice that is fun for children, allowing teachers to see and record progress, and showing parents what is being covered in class.
The Reading Anthologies offer a carefully selected collection of colourful materials to help support the teaching of key concepts in English, Maths and Science as well as the development of early literacy skills.
Teacher's Guides provide accessible support for teachers, including detailed guidance, ideas for English, Maths and Science in the Early Years classroom, assessment support, advice on resources, songs and games, and additional photocopiable activity sheets.
