Dads share their thoughts on Fathers Reading Every Day
We asked dads in south London to tell us what they thought about Fathers Reading Every Day – our supported reading programme for schools, nurseries and children’s centres.
Fathers Reading Every Day is a supported reading programme developed in the US and now available to be delivered in the UK via a ‘train the trainer’ model provided by the Fatherhood Institute. In the FRED programme, fathers spend 15 minutes a day for two weeks, reading with their children – then 30 minutes a day for a second two weeks. Each father documents the amount of time spent reading to their children and the number of books read. At the end the school or other family learning setting holds an event to celebrate all the great work the dads and children have been doing.Children's centres, Early years, fathers story week, FRED, Schools
