Embury College: Bachelor of Education in Foundation Phase Teaching

The STADIO Bachelor of Education in Foundation Phase Teaching is a formal qualification aimed at people who want to work with young children in the Foundation Phase of a school, from Grade R to Grade 3.

The Foundation Phase is the first phase of formal schooling in South Africa, and is very important in establishing the basis on which learners will grow in formal schooling. Learners who do well in the Foundation Phase, in general, will do well in later phases.
