The benefits of father engagement in early learning

why our programs work

Our evidence-based programs increase child and family engagement with learning, improve mental and physical health outcomes and reduce negative behaviours of children with benefits lasting into the school years and beyond.​

Our program supports the early learning framework of being, belonging and becoming, by recognising that fathers and father figures are integral to achieving positive learning and development outcomes for all children.

What’s involved?

Our Early Learning Programs include – ​

  • Evidence-based information for fathers and families on relevant topics such as supporting learning, positive discipline and encouraging resilience.​
  • Events and activities for Centres to share with fathers and families to build engagement, skills and knowledge.​
  • Step-by-step support, tools and professional development materials for staff.​

Select the program that suits your needs

We know every Early Learning Centre is different…

Our three-tiered approach aims to meet each Centre and their fathering community at their point of need. 

No matter where you are based or the community you represent, we are here to support you at each stage of your journey to help engage your fathering community and support family partnerships for the benefit of child development and wellbeing.
