Child Care Responsibility


You can use relatives or close friend’s for occasional babysitting without that person being fingerprinted under some circumstances.  This must not be a routine, daily occurrence, and cannot last for longer than 24 hours. 

You need to be very cautious in making use of such people.  It needs to be people you know very well, and that you are very confident will provide appropriate care for your foster child. 

If there are people you would routinely use for such care, you must have them fingerprinted. 

Be aware that the cost of child care is the responsibility of the Resource Parent.
