About Continuing Training

Kids Count Too
provides 2 hours per month of continuing training. Our agency also provides child care during most of our continuing trainings as we understand how difficult it may be to find someone to care for foster children during this time. Our training topics are determined based on the needs of our foster parents at the current time and the information that is provided on the foster parent training needs assessment forms, which are completed upon foster parent re-certification every two years. Foster parents may choose to attend outside trainings at other facilities with the approval of the Director of Kids Count Too.
