ECE services can help both of these things to happen, so our Aim is:
To identify the ways in which Early Childhood Education (ECE) services engage with their male clients (the “male carers”) of the children in their services.
Two very simple strategies male volunteers? to 1) Make ECE services more male friendly, 2) Improve the quality of child experience in ECE services, 3) Improve the parenting skills of male carers, 4) Improve the quality of life for pre-school children at home5) Attract males into ECE teachingPut up lots of pictures of male carers interacting with pre-school childrenAsk, encourage and insist that male carers spend some time each month interacting with the children at the centre
