Issue 23 – A Man's Place: Fathers, workers and boys in Early Childhood Education and Care Services
As Early Childhood Education and Care services seek to recruit more men as workers, and look for closer involvement with fathers, concerns are also being raised over whether services give sufficient recognition to the development needs of boys.
Issue 23 asks: is masculinity the missing link in ECEC services? And does more attention need to be paid to the needs of boys, and if so how?

A Man's Place: including and engaging fathers and male carers
20 November 2012, Glasgow, Scotland
How can we make services relevant and able to involve fathers positively in their children's lives?
Fathers and male carers, of all kinds and in all situations, are important to the development, well-being and life chances of children, yet children and family services still have difficulty engaging fathers, and many fathers feel that these services are not for them.
On the day after International Men’s Day, this conference will examine how best to make services relevant and able to involve fathers positively in their children's lives, how to make the National Parenting strategy fit for fathers and their children and what we really need to do to listen effectively and respond to what real dads want.
