The role of a father is crucially important in a young child’s life, yet fathers often don’t have the same level of involvement in their child’s lives as mothers do. Research tells us that fathers have a substantial impact on a child’s development and that a child achieves more if fathers are involved.

This course will look at the reasons why it is often such a challenge to get fathers involved, as well as examining ways you can improve engagement with fathers in your own Early Years settings.

The learning objectives for this course are as follows:

  1. To understand why working with fathers is important
  2. To explore and develop strategies to engage with fathers
  3. To understand why working with fathers can create a challenge
  4. To be able to build relationships with fathers in different situations

This course ensures your practice is in line with the requirements of the Childcare Act 2006 (the Act), as amended by the Children and Families Act 2014. It will also support your continuous professional development and enable you to keep well informed and up-to-date with current practice.

Should you wish to discuss your training needs based on the children in your care, please call 0800 774 787.
