Meet other New York City Stay At Home Dads, Part-time at home dads, work from home dads, freelance dads, working dads, and involved fathers in and around NYC to socialize and interact with other guys who enjoy spending quality time with their kids during the day.

Our primary goal is to form an inclusive & active community of involved dads during the week while the rest of the world is working, so we can take advantage of what the city has to offer without the crowds & within a tight budget. This still enables us to have ample time in the evenings and weekends for our family bonding.

Organized meet up events are offered several times per week at a local park/playground, museum, playgym, children's venue, parent & me class, zoo, restaurant, or someone's playroom/lounge in their building.

There are not enough resources, support groups, or services for dads in NYC. This group is the pioneer in achieving more for dads in NYC and the surrounding NY Metro area including Jersey City, and lower Westchester!

Additionally, check out our BLOG SITE to read about PLAYGROUP EXPERIENCES, RELEVANT NEWS, News articles, EVENTS, RESEARCH, WORK-LIFE BALANCE & MORE from a diverse group of dad voices:

Expectant father? We now offer a practical & hands-on workshop for expectant fathers - New Dad Boot Camp:

Finally, we have a $25/year suggested donation to join our Meetup group. This amount is less than the cost of a single kid's class in NYC, but collectively, the money will be used to reach out to more dads around the city, participate in more parent expos, & continue to use our voice to bring the privilege of active fatherhood to all dads.
