Men Matter! Exploring the Importance of Fathers and Father Figures in Early Care
The goal of this session is to allow participants the opportunity to explore the importance of a nurturing fatherhood environment for children, mothers, and fathers while children are in care. Through interactive discussion, participants will share current practices, discover the benefits of engaging the men in early care, and design strategies all programs can adopt.
