Inclusion Support Services works with early education providers such as childcare centers and family childcare homes to support a capacity building model of inclusion where all children have a successful early care education experience. Our services provide training, technical assistance, and coaching to community childcare providers to support children with developmental and / or social emotional concerns to maintain an inclusive placement. Additional activities include helping to bridge the home and early education setting through offering family services and offering relationship focused parent education curriculum in the form of Smart Start and Circle of Security. Professional development opportunities are offered in the community with topics grounded in Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health competencies. ECC’s Inclusion Support Services is funded by the Children’s Board of Hillsborough County and the Early Learning Coalition of Hillsborough County.
