Are you thinking about how life will change once you welcome new children into your home? You may have questions about how your relationship with family and friend might change. Maybe you are wondering about how you are going to introduce this child to your community without breaking confidentiality or what it’s going to be like opening your home not only to children needing care, but everyone on their care team. Join fellow caregivers to share in a discussion of these and other changes you might experience when becoming a caregiver.

How are you going to make a child feel safe, welcome, and sure that their needs will be met? How are you going to handle bath time, bedtime, communications, food, and all the other factors that go into those first few nights in the home? Join fellow caregivers who are also preparing their homes to share in a discussion of challenges and opportunities and develop a plan of action.This course covers the topics of: Caregiver Skills

A child standing on your front porch has many emotions about what awaits them on the other side of that door. What is their first impression? What can we do to set up a diverse and representative environment in our home? What are some ways we can increase our understanding or respect for different cultural beliefs and backgrounds? The mandate when placing children in care has always been to be culturally sensitive to the child’s needs. But it is more than a mandate, it is an important part of creating a safe and welcoming environment.
