What is Inclusion?

Inclusion is a state of being valued, respected, and supported. It's about focusing on the needs of every individual and ensuring the right conditions are in place for each person to achieve his or her full potential.

Any child who needs additional support to learn is given the necessary accommodations to meaningfully participate in their program at the childcare facility. The Child Development and Inclusion Coordinator works with teachers and/or parents to provide supports and strategies to allow for optimal learning.
