The “Working With Dads” professional development training will be facilitated in Broome on Mon 22 June with the assistance of local Parenting WA staff. Facilitator and Meerilinga Dads in the Early Years program leader Gary Segal is hoping that several staff from family, health and educational services in Broome and the Kimberleys enrol in the one-day session at Broome Lotteries House. The visit has been scheduled to coincide with a second annual Fathers Event, to be held the day before. Gary will also be exploring the possibility of Broome developing its own ‘dads and kids playgroup’, having developed the still-thriving “Playdads” playgroup in the metropolitan suburb of Woodvale 7 years ago. Visit the Dads in the Early Years section of the Meerilinga website to download the flyer.
