Inclusion Matters

Okay, dear readers, I need your help.

I have been asked to be a guest speaker at an in-service training for summer inclusion staff for the City’s summer camp childcare program. Movie Boy has partcipated in this program with some ups and downs over the years. Kudos to the Inclusion Supervisor who wants to give these new staff members a Mom’s-eye-view of inclusion and why it is important.

Affordable, quality childcare has always been a necessity for us, and complicated by our need for good inclusion support. Social interaction and life skills are also a big motivator.

Give me your stories and thoughts please.

Why is inclusion in childcare and recreation programs important?

THANKS!

  1. That’s wonderful that they are reaching out!

    My first thought is that it helps everyone to be exposed to diversity — to learn that other people don’t do things the same way, communicate the same way, think the same way or look the same way — and to have the opportunity for all the kids to learn cooperation, compassion, tolerance and creativity (I mean, haven’t you had to learn to be more creative in approaching problems — I know I have!).
