This study aims to describe and discuss the achievements and factors of failure to achieve the implementation of policies for the implementation of inclusive education in early childhood institutions in the city of Medan. This research was conducted using descriptive research methods with a qualitative approach that emphasized the study of 6 (six) research indicators from William N. Dunn (2000: 610), namely effectiveness, efficiency, adequacy, similarity, responsiveness, and accuracy.

The results of this study indicate that the evaluation of the implementation of inclusive education policies in early childhood education institutions has not been well implemented, there are still some obstacles : there is no Special Advisory Teacher in inclusion early childhood education institutions, inadequate facilities and infrastructure to meet the special needs of children with special needs, the response of the Medan City Education Department is still in the form of socialization of inclusive education and monitoring to early childhood education institutions.
