Creating Inclusive Environments and Learning Experiences for Infants and Toddlers
A sense of authentic belonging is essential to inclusion. Just sharing physical space is not enough; when caregivers work to create meaningful relationships and experiences to fully include infants and toddlers with identified or suspected disabilities or other special needs, everyone benefits. Creating a truly inclusive environment means fostering inclusivity in the social-emotional environment—a sense of belonging—as well as making appropriate adaptations to the physical environment and materials.
