This study intends to know the effects of living together in inclusive Day Cares and Pre-Schools on the shape of children in what is related to acceptance of differences, seeking to identity attitudes and establishing a possible relationship between having lived together with disabled children at an inclusive Day Care or Pre-School and the way of relating to people significantly different along life. The research will be made based on a qualitative approach. Visits will be made to choose Day Care Schools and Pre-Schools with characteristics of an inclusive environment and students from these institutions graduated between 2003 and 2008 will be interviewed; these are currently in Elementary School. Data analysis will be done based on the Critical Theory of Society, which has as an assumption the relevance of shaping processes in early childhood lighted by psychoanalysis investigations. (AU)
