Children typically spend about four months to a year on Foundations A, depending on the age and prior knowledge of the student. Preschoolers starting Foundations will often spend up to a year on level A, while students who already have some prior phonics knowledge or have begun to read before beginning Foundations will often move more quickly through levels A (and, in some cases, B).

The "right" pace through the curriculum varies by student and setting, but it's common for students to complete Foundations levels A through D in 2-3 years.
