What if I work outside the home?

Foster parents may work outside the home. Depending on the child's age, there may be a need for daycare or after-school care while the foster parent is at work. In such cases, it is strongly recommended that foster parents use licensed daycare providers to ensure the childcare provider has undergone the appropriate background checks and met all other licensing requirements. Foster parents are also required to provide the child's social worker with contact and other information regarding the child's daycare provider so that this information can be provided to the child's attorney and the Juvenile Court.

Additional information regarding childcare for foster children will be discussed during the initial training foster parents receive prior to receiving their foster care licenses.
