The City of Casey’s Fathers Inclusion Team has developed a series of interactive, inclusive and exciting programs for men to join in with their children aged 0 to 6 years.
These programs, targeted specifically to dads, step-dads, grandfathers and other men who play an integral role in a child’s life are critical to the fabric of the Casey community and are being embraced by men living within the municipality. By offering a range of programs just for dads, the City of Casey recognises the important role men play in their family structure.
Developing social networks and support channels among other dads, while spending valuable time with their children, is important for men and the City of Casey’s range of programs are available throughout the week, all year round.
The loose format of many of the programs allows dads to come and go as their schedules permit and weekend activities are proving very popular.
For any enquiries and bookings please contact the City of Casey on 9705 5590 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
RPM is a fun and interactive program for dads and their children.
- Sharing stories and playing games
