For Dads

For Dads

 

Dads matter too!
Here at Colchester and Tendring Children's Centres we understand the value of a father figure in a child's life. Children need fathers just as they need mothers, to love them, to be interested in them and to respond to their needs, making them feel valued and understood. This gives fathers and male carers the opportunity to have that all important quality and enjoyable time with their children. These sessions enable children and fathers to form an enjoyable and rewarding relationship, which is good for both and can make a big difference to a child's life.

Groups for fathers and father figures run from several children's centres please check your local children's centre calendar for details. The groups are fun sessions for fathers and their children to enjoy different themed activities such as sports and music sessions.
