Fathers bring unique ways of parenting that offer important benefits for children’s development, learning and well being. Whether living together or romantically involved, or not, when two caregivers are raising a child, and are able to partner to complement the gifts that each of them can bring, everyone benefits. In this two-part series, we will discuss strategies to engage fathers in early childhood programs and family-focused services, and to support parents as co-partners.
Each 90-minute live, interactive workshop will take place on the dates listed below. All sessions will begin at 12:30 pm ET / 9:30 am PT. Sessions will be recorded, and live Spanish translation and closed captioning will be available.
