As a caregiver of a child in foster care, documentation is very important. It is best practice to have a binder for each child in your home. This binder should include at least a copy of the child’s placement letter, records of medication given, records from doctors visits, notes from daycare and/or school, notes from therapy, a log of parental visits, caseworker visits, court dates, and other resources available to you.
