There is a variety of different fostering settings with Regular Care or Respite Care being the most commonly known. Others include:
Regular Foster Care
This is the most common fostering arrangement where foster families provide for the day-to-day care of a child in a family setting. This placement may last a matter of days, weeks or most often a matter of months.
Respite Foster Care
Respite Foster homes provide temporary care as a break to regular full-time foster families. These placements are usually for a matter of days and may appeal to those families wishing to consider fostering part-time.
Kinship Care are homes provided by a family who is known to a child, such as a relative or family friend. The care provided is like regular foster care, the difference being that the home is opened as a foster home to meet the needs of a specific child or children.
