Men can play a key role in the development and well-being of young children.  In many cases, however, men still have limited involvement in their child’s early care and education. The Demonstration School and the Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership, together with Florida International University, provides men the opportunity to be involved in their children’s education by using skills in the classroom or providing a forum for them to share their ideas about their child’s education and development. This initiative is part of a research group called Padres Activos (Active Fathers) that brings together researchers from the fields of health communication, public health, pediatrics, biomedical engineering, and sociocultural studies in order to increase engagement among Hispanic/Latino fathers.
