Foster & Kinship Care Education Program (FKCE)


The Foster and Kinship Care Education Program provides quality education and support opportunities for care givers of children and youth in out- of home care so that these providers may meet the educational, emotional, behavioral and developmental needs of children and youth.

The core topics required for in-service and pre-service are:

  • Parenting Skills
  • Working with the System
  • Permanency Planning/Reunification/Emancipation
  • Specialized Topics
  • Training of Trainers for Care Providers

In 1996, AB 3062 (Statutes of 1996, Chapter 1016) was passed, establishing a mandate for all foster parents to obtain education training at both the pre-service level.
