The University of Melbourne, Department of Social Work and The Berry Street Childhood Institute are inviting carers of foster or kinship care children who have yet to start full-time school to take part in a new national study called Early Childhood in Foster and Kinship Care.
The study will collect important new information that government and non-government agencies can use to support the good development of foster and kinship care children during early childhood and ensure they start school healthy and eager to learn.
Participants will complete a 30 minute survey about their foster/kinship care child’s participation in early learning and care programs, informal learning and wellbeing.
The survey can be completed online or on paper. The survey can also be completed as a telephone interview. Participants who have difficulties with English can complete a telephone interview in their preferred language.
Participants can choose to enter a draw to win one of 10 $50 gift vouchers.
