Index for Inclusion: Developing Play, Learning and Participation in Early Years and Childcare
Booth, Tony; Ainscow, Mel; Kingston, Denise
Centre for Studies on Inclusive Education
This 2006 revised and updated edition of the Index for early years and childcare now includes a CD Rom to make it more accessible. The Index is a detailed set of materials to help settings increase the participation of children and young people in play and learning. The Index involves a self-review of all aspects of a setting, drawing on additional help as needed. It encourages the involvement in inclusive development of all practitioners, volunteers, management committee/governors, children, young people and their parents/carers. Actions to assist inclusion are prioritized and a development plan is drawn up, implemented and reviewed using the Index materials. These changes are sustained in the setting as the process progresses annually. Within the Index process, practitioners are helped by 46 indicators of inclusion to investigate their culture, policy and practice and to combat all forms of discrimination. These are linked to over 600 questions which allow the setting to be reviewed in detail.
