What is Inclusive Child Care?

There was a time not all that long ago when children were all painted with the exact same brush regardless of how unique they happened to be in some way, shape or form. This was a process that existed since the birth of centralized and formalized education, but suffice it to say that it is perhaps the worst type of education that anyone had the misfortune of being forced to endure. A big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that trying to treat every child the same fails to recognize that their differences are what make them special in the first place.

For example, just because a child is not good at mathematics does not necessarily indicate that they are unintelligent. Similarly, a child that struggles to read in an appropriate manner might suffer from dyslexia, but this in no way indicates that they would face similar troubles when it comes to problem solving, empathy or various other things that comprise human intelligence. At Learning Pathways, they tend to take a much more different approach which is called inclusive child care.

Inclusivity in the field of child care essentially involves each child being given guidance and training according to their needs. Kids that excel in one area will be allowed to thrive, while extra attention will be given to those that are struggling. This can enable kids to stay true to themselves rather than to conform to what society expects them to be. That can be really arbitrary and it can inevitably have a negative impact on kids which is why this change was so necessary for the world in general.
