Posted on 03/10/2022
Plainville Adult and Continuing Education will launch Boot Camp for New Dads®, a community-based workshop,  that supports the transition to fatherhood.  This dynamic workshop will be conducted by a trained Instructor, fostering mentorship among expectant fathers and new fathers, resulting in inspirational comradery among a diverse group, aiming to help develop confident, engaged dads. The program has been in existence for over 30 years, and has graduated over 500,000 men. Currently, Boot Camp for New Dads® is regularly available in 44 states, on U.S. military bases, Canada, and the U.K. Jill O’Brien, Plainville Adult and Continuing Education Coordinator commented, “Thanks to a generous grant from the Men & Boys’ Fund of the Main Street Community Foundation in Bristol, we are delighted to offer this unique program locally.”

Boot Camp for New Dads® workshop,  designed for new and expectant fathers, will be delivered during a single, 3- hour session, early evenings at Plainville High, in late April and will repeat in early June. Topics include: baby blues, calming a crying baby, dealing with pets, dealing with stress, developing one’s own style, diapering, safety, schedules, and more. There will be time for discussion, and questions and answers.  All participants will receive a book, Crash Course for Dads-To-Be. The tuition is $8.00 per person, with full tuition scholarships available for anyone in need. New dads are encouraged to bring their babies to the workshop.
