Early Childhood Inclusion - Home Page


For children with disabilities and other special needs, being educated with typically developing peers is key to their educational and life-long success! Child care providers who offer quality care in an inclusive environment create a solid foundation for the success of all children.

At the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, we want all child care programs to feel confident in the quality of care they provide to children with disabilities and other special needs. We also want parents to know that YoungStar programs are willing and able to care for all children!

The YoungStar Inclusion web pages provide information, helpful tips and relevant resources for child care providers and families. We invite you to explore and learn!


If you have concerns or questions about a child's development (physical, social-emotional, or cognitive), contact: Wisconsin First Step Information and Referral Hotline at 1-800-642-STEP (7837) or Child Find.
