Guide for Inclusive Collaboration (Forms/Policies)

***For Directors of Licensed Child Care Programs in the City of Ottawa***

Children’s Inclusion Support Services is excited to present the revised supervisor’s kit now called, “A Guide for Inclusive Collaboration with CISS”.

The intention is for you to readily access information to support effective communication between our programs regarding inclusion practices and policies. It is also meant for you to easily access forms as you plan for supported inclusion for each child being enrolled in your program. We appreciate the support that you will continue to provide for families who are completing forms as we move to this new format.

In the future, if for any reason a change or update in the guide is required, it will be completed on the website so that you will always have access to current policies, procedures, forms and so on. We recommend that you download what you need as you go.
