Following the development of the launch of AIM in June 2016, an element of the universal supports (Levels 1-3) for the early years sector includes a new Inclusion Charter underpinned by updated Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Guidelines for Early Childhood Care and Education.

The National Training Programme provides practitioners with an opportunity to explore the concepts of Diversity and Equality within the preschool context and will support participants in the development of an inclusive early years environment for all children.

The programme will help participants to;

• engage effectively with the Diversity, Equality & Inclusion guidelines

• support all children to meet the learning goals outlined within the Identity and Belonging and Well-being themes of Aistear.

• support children and families from minority groups e.g. Traveller Community, Children with Additional Needs, Ethnic Minorities

• develop an Inclusion Policy as required under the Childcare Early Years Services Regulations 2016

This 15 hour training programme for educators has been developed around the Charter and Guidelines. It explores a wide variety of challenges facing early childhood services that can inhibit or prevent services operating in a fully inclusive manner. Challenges such as prejudice, real representation of all children in an early childhood service, strategies to promote inclusive practice and how to draw up an Inclusion policy for your early childhood service are all explored. The programme uses the strength based Anti-Bias approach throughout.
