3. SUPPORTING AN INCLUSIVE
ENVIRONMENT

4

This sequence of activities will help you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of what is meant by equality,
diversity and inclusion. Childcare settings have policies and procedures in place which support inclusive practice for all children. You must be familiar with these so that you can
demonstrate inclusive practice through your own actions in all areas of your work. You will also consider the importance of positive attitudes and practice for children with a disability or specific requirement.

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
The following activities will support you to generate evidence of your knowledge and understanding of the role of childcare services in promoting equality, diversity and inclusion. You must also show that you understand the rights of children and young people to inclusive practice and the potential effects of discrimination, including for children with a disability or special requirement.
