AIM Inclusive Play Information
AIM Inclusive Play
AIM Inclusive Play is the latest addition to the suite of supports provided under the Access and Inclusion Model (AIM).
- AIM Inclusive Play is a set of sensory and educational play resources to support inclusive practice within pre-school settings.
- These resources, which include equipment, toys and materials, also support the development of coordination and audio, visual and tactile skills among all children, and in particular, children with a disability.
- All pre-school rooms delivering the ECCE Programme across more than 4,000 pre-school settings nationally will receive these resources.
- AIM Inclusive Play offers the potential to support the implementation of all levels of AIM. Many elements of Síolta and Aistear can also be supported by the effective use of these resources.
AIM Inclusive Play reinforces an important message – that children’s play is a vital ingredient of childhood, essential for both growth and learning and an integral element of high quality pre-school provision.
The potential uses of the resources are far reaching.
Pre-school practitioners are encouraged to engage with and reflect on how these resources can be best used with children in their own setting.
