Teachers’ positive attitude towards inclusion can improve the quality of inclusive education for early childhood with special needs. Affecting factors for teachers’ attitude are the length of teaching experience and the experience of training in inclusive education. This study aims to see the effect of interaction between the two variables on teachers’ attitudes towards inclusive education. As many as 90 teachers of inclusive early childhood school in Indonesia were asked to fill out a Multidimensional Attitudes Towards Inclusive Education Scale (MATIES-VI) questionnaire that measures teachers’ attitudes, both in total and in three components, namely cognitive, affective, and behavior. The result shows that the length of teaching experience and the interaction of both variables do not affect the attitude towards inclusive education. Even so, it appears that inclusive education training effects the total and the behavioral score of teachers’ attitudes.
