Almost one million Australian children are growing up in a home without their biological father.

In response to this, the Dads 4 Kids Fatherhood Foundation is pioneering a revolutionary approach to combating a crisis in Australian fatherhood which is affecting our children.

“The Good to Great fathering course is a ten week, one night per week, fathering course designed to help you be the best Dad you can be for your children,” said Toowoomba course co-ordinator Will Curtis.

The course involves education, support, recognition and a mutual sense of achievement for groups of men who together strive for excellence in the most important task of their lives.

“Every young child believes that his or her father is the best dad in the world.,” said Will. “Good to Great is about preparing fathers to prove their children right, one family at a time.”

The course provides foundational information and skills to assist men in understanding and prioritising their relationships. It achieves this through creating fun and unique shared experiences for fathers and their children, together with others course participating families.

These include a family fun night, an overnight camping trip, a romantic weekend away with your wife and a graduation ceremony.

“Skills and knowledge are not only learnt but are applied during the course, together with strong peer and mentoring support, will make this a challenging and rewarding learning experience,” said Will.
