The Area Inclusion Co-ordinator Service
This service aims to develop and enhance the inclusive practice of all early years and childcare practitioners throughout Hampshire in their care of children aged 0-19 years.
Inclusion is the process of removing barriers to participation and learning so that everyone benefits fully from educational opportunities.
This is achieved through the empowering of all those working in early years settings to develop inclusive early learning environments, and to help them support children in removing barriers to learning wherever these exist.
