Dads matter programs

About the program

Our programs are for dads, step-dads, grandfathers and other men who play an important role in a child's life. Our programs include:

  • Cook it with Dad: for dads and kids to cook and eat healthy meals together
  • Dad's Little Builders: for dads and kids to connect through creating and building
  • Baby Play Time: for dads and babies (0 – 18 months) to have fun and meet other dads.
  • Dig it with Dad: get dirty with your kids and grow fruit and vegetables in our private garden plot

Our programs are all designed to help dads and other father figures:

  • develop social networks with other dads
  • connect with their children together in fun activities
  • recognise the important role they play in their family structure

Our programs all follow a loose format, which allows you to come and go depending on your schedule.

  • Baby Play Time - Orana Community Place - Thursday 29th February 2024
