Supporting children in care

A guide for educators working with children from early childhood to secondary school age.

About the Supporting children in care guide

Children and young people in care, or who have been in care, are likely to have had traumatic early experiences. They may need more support with getting along with others, participating and learning alongside their peers.

The Supporting children in care guide is for educators in all settings so that they can provide appropriate support for children and young people, so they experience wellbeing and achievement.

This guide is available in English and Māori.

Further guidance and/or an update of this document is likely to be issued when the National Care Standards go live in July 2018.
