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
  • read-play-make: for dads and kids to build relationships through story-telling and activities
  • daytime dads: for dads and kids to bond through fun & play during the week

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.
