Helping Children & Youth in Care Achieve School Success
Getting ready for school can be a complex and potentially overwhelming experience for children and youth in care—as well as for foster parents. You may have a child in your home who will be starting at a brand new school, returning to the same school, or you may be welcoming a new child into your home during the school year—someone whom you haven’t even met yet. As a foster parent, there are some ways that you can plan ahead (as much as possible) to help the child in your care succeed in school.
