Abstract

Inclusive education is the government’s effort in providing the right to a decent education for children who have various capabilities not only for regular students but also for students with special needs. The adjustment is aimed at bringing and maintaining a friendly environment and appreciating diversity. At the kindergarten level, the existence of inclusive education is often neglected since kindergarten is not one of educational compulsory programs in Indonesia. In fact, by using the systemic literature review method, this study has revealed that numerous studies have claimed that implementing inclusive education in kindergarten has given significant benefits for all school members. On the other hand, of course, the implementation is then followed by the challenges. The outcome of this study is hoped to provide a template to support access and equity for all children and a reference for implementing high-quality inclusive kindergarten in Indonesia.
