it says in the new minimum standards that we need 'an understanding' of it. if you have the new standards check page 9

It is not a legal requirement for childminders in Wales to follow the Foundation Phase unless they are on a Network and providing the Free provision. However it isin the standards and good practice to bring it into your planning. Very easy to do:D
