About Me


My name is Michelle O’Connor.

I am a Playschool teacher and I strongly believe in the importance of Inclusive Preschool Education for all young children through Play activities.
My own education includes Early Childhood Education and Care and Inclusion Coordination in Preschools. I have worked as a Preschool teacher for seven years and before that I worked in the field of Adult Education and Training for twelve years. I took some time out between careers to have my two children and that was when my interest in Adult Education developed into a passion for Early Years Inclusive Education through Play.

Through this website and blog I share my ideas and knowledge and I hope that I can help you learn more about the value of inclusive play education for all young children.

Early Years Together provides information about Early Childhood Education and Inclusive Practices, Approaches and Play Activities.

Inclusive Early Childhood Education is a dynamic and fast-moving environment.

Inclusive Early Childhood Education has long lasting benefits for children’s well-being and for their social, emotional, behavioural, language and cognitive development.

Children who participate in quality Early Childhood Education are more likely to be confident, curious and have a positive attitude to learning which will help them as they transition to School and throughout their life.

All children have a right to education and care that meets their individual needs.

Inclusive Education and Care enhances all children’s early years learning experiences.

Inclusive Early Childhood Educational settings provide learning environments where all children can blossom to their full potential.
