DSS Family

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.

Danish-Scottish Playgroup

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. 


The playgroup is open to children aged 0-5, and their parents. We sing, we read stories and we play in Danish.

The playgroup takes place alongside Danish School for the older kids at 6VT Youth Cafe.

It is free to participate, but please tell one of our coordinators, if you are planning to join us. Just send a text to Line (07928056976) or Emily (07765386171) Friday evening at the latest. If we do not have enough people signed up, we may cancel the playgroup (we will text those signed up 24 hours ahead of the playgroup if we need to cancel, so please do not just turn up).

Come along for some hygge!

The playgroup meets once a month with our coordinator Emma doing Danish bookbug sessions.

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, 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.

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 £120 divided into two instalments. We offer 25 % discounts to siblings. A concessionary rate is also available. Please email the school coordinator Jesper on dss.skole@gmail.com 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.
