Social Inclusion: A Systemic Approach to Child’s Well Being

Abstract

The presentation will serve as a guide for teachers in contributing to the child's well -being. It will also enable them to transform the environment into inclusive and equitable learning spaces. In this paper, we have focused on the ecological systems theory which clarifies the role and importance of school and teachers as caretakers in a child's life. It explains the connections we need to make in bringing about a positive change in a child's life and contributing to his well-being. Firstly, by placing the child in the center of different layers of the environmental system and secondly, by connecting all the microsystems that are closest to the child which includes his neighborhood , child care facilities and family. It also connects the circle of Macrosystem which includes the government educational policies and its commitment to universal education in India. Macrosystem is a determinant of the functioning of other systems in a child's life.
