Inclusion Committee

The Inclusion subcommittee of CPAC was established in 2002 to lead the creation and implementation of a citywide strategic plan to promote inclusive child care for children through age 13 in San Francisco. Inclusive child care means offering programs where children with special health care needs and typically developing children learn and play side by side.  It means creating environments where children with disabilities are not only included, but genuinely belong.  Research shows that these environments significantly benefit children with disabilities, their families, and their peers.
