DSS Family is our group for all activities and events for children and young people. We run Glasgow and Edinburgh playgroups, which are free to members of Danish-Scottish Society. For children and young people aged 5-16, the Danish School in Scotland run Danish group lessons every second weekend in Edinburgh. DSS Family also arranges events like Fastelavn and Summer Party. You can keep up with what's happening by signing up to the DSS Family newsletter.
The playgroup is an opportunity for children (0-5 years old) and their parents to meet, sing and have fun while exploring Danish. It is organised by parents and free for Danish-Scottish Society members. 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.
Due to the corona crisis, there are no planned playgroup dates at the moment. If you would like to join in an online Danish playgroup, you are welcome to get in touch with Tina Bollerslev.
The playgroup takes place at 6VT Youth Cafe from 1-3pm one Sunday a month.
A new playgroup will be starting up in Glasgow when circumstances allow. We will bring you news on where and when via the website and facebook.
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 Family newsletter and the facebook group.

The Danish School in Scotland
We run Danish group lessons for children and young people every second Sunday in Edinburgh. The lessons are taught by a qualified teacher and they are the perfect opportunity for children and young people to develop their Danish in a group setting regardless of their abilities. You can read more about the school's aims, mission and values here.
"My children have really enjoyed the school since they started attending last year. It's definitely encouraged and helped them to improve their Danish, whilst also being a fun and social experience that they enjoy. The fact that classes run on a fortnightly basis also works really well. We look forward to the school starting up again after summer." Ewan Cameron-Nielsen
The school year is organised into two semesters - August to January and February to June. Each semester has 10 lessons and you can enrol up until two weeks before semester start. The full rate price is dependent on the number of children enrolling. It is currently £110 divided into two instalments. We offer 25 % discounts to siblings. A concessionary rate is also available. Please email the school coordinator Jesper on firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The school is run by a steering group consisting of four parents, one Danish-Scottish Society committee member and one representative from the playgroup.
The Danish School has now closed for enrolments to the next semester, which began on the 7th February. We will open for enrolments again in July.
