Abracadabra Childcare Services

During this time I have been looking after two families who have Foster Children in their care. One little girl is aged 9yrs old and requires care before and after school, she has behavioural issues and requires encouragement to go to school. I have also worked with another little girl who has an eating disorder and requires constant supervision. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with these families and whilst it has presented some challenges I have been able to liaise directly with the case workers with each family. I have built a very special bond with the children and gained their trust in the short time I have been caring for them both.
