School and Daycare
A Guide to School and Daycare for Foster Children
Childcare for Young Foster Children
There are a number of resources available to help foster parents find and pay for daycare for young foster children.
School and Education
Foster parents play an important role in education.
Foster parents are responsible for making sure their children attend school, arrive on time, and receive the support they need. Stay in regular contact with teachers and administrators to ensure that your child receives any services they may require.
Where to Attend
When possible, it is best for children in foster care to continue attending their prior school when possible. In some cases, arrangements can be made for bus routes to be altered to accomodate the child’s new living circumstances. Contact the child’s school to see what options are available.
In some cases, children must change schools due to distance. In these cases, try to make the transition as smooth as possible.
