ChildCare Education Institute® (CCEI), an online child care training provider dedicated exclusively to the early care and education workforce, celebrates Father’s Day with a free online training course titled FAM101: Supporting Fathers and Promoting Father Involvement in the ECE Program.
Today, an average father in a two-parent household is spending 250 percent more time on child care and household chores. It is also interesting to note that the share of “stay-at-home” fathers has nearly doubled just since 1989. Today, 7 percent of fathers report that they care for house and children at home full-time according to statistics gathered from various sources such as Pew Research Center, Father Involvement Research Alliance (FIRA), and the National Center for Fathering (NCF).
What impact does a father have, exactly? Research shows that the presence of an involved, positive father in the home reduces risks related to:
▪ Infant mortality
▪ Emotional and behavioral issues
▪ Teen pregnancy
▪ Drug use and obesity
▪ Poor academic performance
“This course presents the latest research on a number of topics concerning fathers and fatherhood, along with pertinent recommended practices for childcare providers," says Maria C. Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI. “Course participants will learn about the importance of dad-style play, strategies for promoting more father involvement in the ECE program, and tips for supporting children without a father living in the home.”
