Based on a pilot project with analyses of video recordings in a daycare centre, a model for analysis of inclusion and exclusion is being developed. The model can be used as an observation, analysis and evaluation tool that examines the learning environment and children's communities in daycare facilities, and in which inclusion and exclusion processes can be observed in pedagogical practice. Whether children play alone, with other children or with an adult, they are usually included physically, but not always socially or mentally. The article demonstrates how practice can be analysed with the aim of qualifying and systematizing the work of including all children in communities. Results from the pilot project show, among other things, how children have strategies for becoming part of the children's community or an adult-guided play, and how a child who walks around alone is not excluded but interacts with the physical learning environment.
