Being the full-time care giver for our children presents unique challenges. Full-time parenting groups in our area are mostly, if not exclusively, moms. We need a group where dads aren't the minority. This group gives an opportunity to share and talk about the unique challenges of being a dad. Kids of all ages are welcome.

We hold weekly playgroups, primarily Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon. as more members join and interest grows, we'll add additional playgroups at other times throughout the week.

A few times a year we get together for a family picnic. For our regular members, this is a wonderful time we get to put faces to names and meet the wonderful women and partners who have become the silent faces of this group. If you're a new member, this is a great chance to meet everyone in a low key setting.

Starting in 2012, we are going to be adding an additional get together, sans-kids, once a month. This should give everyone a chance to spend some time together without someone running off every 30 seconds.

If you aren't a stay-at-home dad but are interested in joining, please do. This group was founded and populated by men looking for a place to meet outside of the traditional mommy-only playgroups. If you're a dad from another walk of life don't be afraid to give us a chance. Just don't be thrown off if we spend the whole playgroup tying shoes, wiping runny noses and talking about beer and cars.,

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
