SureStart Ards Programmes

Dad’s Activities

While it is mainly mums who use Surestart activities, dads are also very welcome at all of our activities (apart from our Breastfeeding Group, Aqua Natal Yoga Class and Mellow Programmes).
Children can benefit greatly from having a male adult role model in their life and we would love to see more dads accessing our services with their children. Therefore we are developing some services specifically for Dads. If your child’s father is not involved in their life, another male adult care giver, like a step-dad or granddad is welcome to bring them to our dads activities instead.
In January 2019 we will be pilotting a new Toddler Soccer programme in Westwinds> The programme is called Baby Bears and will be delivered in partnership with a well renowned Football Club. Baby Bears is suitable for 2 & 3 year olds (girls and boys) who must be accompanied by an adult male care giver. You do not need any footballing skills but should be prepared to get involved in the fun!
Who knows – maybe the next Ronaldo will start their footballing jouney at Surestart Ards!

  • Suitable for:Girls and Boys aged 0-3 years and their Dad (or other male care giver)
  • Duration:Various
  • Creche:No
