I need support to get out and about. I am very active and lively and I'm a very happy child. If you are providing support to me, you will need to be physically fit as I can run off and have no sense of danger. I like going swimming, trampolining and soft play but I need to do these activities when it is quiet as I do not like crowds. When working with me, you will need to use your initiative to keep my interest, otherwise I will want to go home early and my foster family will not get the break that they need. I also like going for a drive.
