Dads Unlimited - "Helping you grow as a Father"

(Programs for dads in the Fox Valley and Oshkosh, brought to you by Parent Connection)


Parent Connection offers programs designed specifically for new and expectant fathers in the Fox Cities. All programs are taught by experienced dads with offerings such as:


  • Baby Basics Classes

  • A free, three-hour class for new and expectant fathers to discuss and practice the skills needed to nurture and care for their babies. Based on the Conscious Fathering™ curriculum, the program provides hands-on training in a comfortable setting using life-size dolls. Participants learn how to handle, feed, burp, change, clean and calm their newborn infant. Discussions include what to expect in upcoming months and how to enhance dad’s relationship with the baby’s mother. Register for either location below by contacting ThedaCare at 920-830-6877 or
