Equality refers to treating everyone equally. Every setting has an equal opportunities policy which should be followed, in my setting each child is treated equally and is supported where they need it, if a child needs help with mobility then they’re assisted as and when they need it, everyone should be valued for individuality and should therefore be offered help and support.

Inclusion is a process to include everyone and to meet individual needs even children, as it is a human right for everyone. This way everyone counts and differences are valued and respected.
