FKCE Guiding Values:

The development of the Foster and Kinship Care Education program is guided by the belief that children and youth will achieve their fullest potential when:

  • Children/youth feel they belong to families that are strong, safe and nurturing.
  • There is consistency in care.
  • Caregivers are qualified, caring and knowledgeable.
  • Caregivers are retained.
  • Caregivers are linked to and collaborate with community support services.
  • There is permanency that is in the best interest of the child.
