The purpose of this study was to explore the attitude of the daycare center directors toward inclusion of young children with disabilities in Korea. The subjectivity study method (Q-methodology) was used for this research. The Q-statements of this study were 37 units. P-samples as subjects of this research were 36 daycare center directors. As the results of this research, the attitude of daycare center directors toward inclusion of children with disabilities was structured in three types. The result of this research will be helpful for the Korea government to plan the policy about inclusion of young children with disabilities.

Although the importance of inclusive education for young children with disabilities has been emphasized for long time, most of general daycare center have denied the inclusion of young children with disabilities in Korea. Lots of young children with disabilities are included in the daycare centers for children with disabilities which are separated from general children. One of the reason is the clause of the law relation to inclusion is not mandatory but just recommendation. The other reason is the myths about inclusion of young children with disabilities; that is, general children will follow the behavior problem of children with disabilities and can’t speak as like children with disabilities. To increase of inclusion of young children with disabilities in daycare center, the attitude of directors is important. From this research, we knew the attitude type of daycare center directors toward inclusion of young children with disabilities in Korea. Depends on their attitude type inclusion of young children with disabilities, it will be need to approach to increase and improvement of inclusion in daycare center. Learning objectives of this study are the awareness on the importance of attitude type analysis and introduction about the subjective study.
