How do we achieve inclusion in preschool classrooms?
The Singapore Government announced in April 2021 new initiatives to enhance inclusion and support for children with developmental needs. These initiatives are "to enable children with developmental needs to learn, play, contribute and participate meaningfully, alongside their typically developing peers in preschools and the community."
To achieve this equity, it is important for the early childhood community to understand what works and what doesn't. There is a need to translate policies, frameworks, and research studies and data into classroom practices that will achieve positive outcomes for children and families.
In this conference, we will look at some of these evidence-based practices and invite the early childhood community to learn and work together so that our children can have a good start in life.
While our main target audience are early years practitioners (think: preschool teachers, early interventionists, educational support teachers etc), anyone is open to join us.
As long as you desire to be part of the force that makes every preschool in Singapore inclusive, join us! We trust it will be a meaningful time for you.
