Services for Young Children

Area Inclusion Co-ordinator Service

This service was created to perform a statutory duty in response to government legislation.

The aim is to develop and enhance the inclusive practice of all early years and childcare practitioners throughout Hampshire.

This is achieved through empowering early years practitioners to develop inclusive early learning environments, and to help them support children in removing barriers to learning wherever these exist.

The Area Inclusion Co-ordinator (Area InCo) provides support to early years and out of school settings:
