Collaborating for Inclusion

The BMW Laboratory School has a long-standing commitment to integrating children with various abilities and special needs into the program, which is based on several beliefs.

Children vary widely in developmental pace and style during the early years. It is not unusual to have quite a range of developmental levels in the same early childhood classroom. Positive, personal experiences shared by children of differing backgrounds and developmental skills can be of great long-term value to all children. When these experiences occur in natural and familiar surroundings, messages of belonging and individual worth are conveyed to all the children.

The Bernice M. Wright Child Development Laboratory School’s commitment to inclusive education involves collaborative work with several community agencies including Connections and Liberty Post.
