Teacher Time

Inclusion and Belonging, Birth to 5

The 2020–2021 Teacher Time series focuses on inclusion and belonging with infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and their families. Inclusive early learning environments are places in which children, with and without disabilities, and their families experience a sense of belonging, positive social relationships, and development to reach their full potential. Find out how teachers and family child care professionals provide all children and families with access to a wide range of learning opportunities, activities, settings, and environments. Explore ways to ensure that individualized supports are in place that allow children to participate fully in play and learning activities. And discover ways to partner closely with families and work together within a broader system of community supports and specialized services; this includes support systems for education staff to help them implement high-quality inclusive practices.

Topics for the webinars include:

  • Inclusive learning environments for all children
  • Learning materials that promote inclusion and belonging
  • Supporting families through inclusion
