The Danish-Scottish Society has playgroups in Glasgow and Edinburgh for children and their parents to meet, sing and have fun while exploring Danish language and culture.
Our Edinburgh Legegruppe is aimed at the under 5 year-olds. The Legegruppe takes place one Sunday afternoon a month in Edinburgh. Each month has set structure and a theme with books, songs and activities for the children to enjoy. The sessions are led by our Legegruppe Coordinators.
Tickets can be purchased in the DSS shop and covers the cost of room hire and materials for five sessions. Siblings pay half price.
Once you have signed up, please join the Edinburgh Legegruppe WhatsApp group, where we share important updates.
The playgroup meets once a month and our coordinator Emma runs Danish bookbug sessions with singing, dancing and a book reading followed by child-led play time.
The Danske Forældre i Glasgow facebook group is available to Danish parents in and around Glasgow for meetups and play dates.
Any changes will be communicated via the DSS newsletters, our Whatsapp chat and the Facebook group.
There is no need to book so feel free to drop in and join in the fun. The more involved in the activities you become, the more the children get out of it.
We look forward to seeing you!

Dansk Skole is our group for families that follow the Danes Worldwide programme of online Danish courses. Families need to sign up to and pay for the course themselves. All families wanting to follow the program are encouraged to start at the same date so they can follow the courses together and better support one another. The parents are responsible for their own child’s learning and act as a teacher for their own child. While the work with the material is individual, we encourage all families following the program to support each other through Zoom meet ups.
Once a month, we invite the Dansk Skole children and their parents to come along 6VT Youth Cafe in Edinburgh. Children will need to bring their own laptop to work with the course material. It will be a chance for the children (and their parents) to meet other Danish children (and parents) and make Danish friends.
If you are interested in signing your child up to the online Danish course, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will help set up a parent group on WhatsApp, where all families following the course can support each other and coordinate Zoom meet ups in between the monthly 6VT meet ups.
Our Edinburgh Lege Skole is for families of children over the age of 5, who would like to learn Danish in an informal setting with an emphasis on Danish culture. The Lege Skole takes place one Sunday afternoon a month in Edinburgh.
Each session has a theme and set structure as follows: chat about our homework - book about the theme - creative challenge - song about the theme - free play - sangleg. There will also be homework related to the theme to complete before each session. The homework might be the read a story, watch a TV show or listen to a song related to the theme of the next session. The sessions are led by our Lege Skole Coordinators.
Tickets can be purchased in the DSS shop and covers the cost of room hire and materials for five sessions.
