DSS Family is our group for all activities and events for children and young people.
For children aged 0-5, we have Glasgow and Edinburgh playgroups, which are free to members of Danish-Scotttish Society.
For children and young people aged 5-16, the Danish School in Scotland run Danish group lessons every second weekend in Edinburgh.
The Danish-Scottish Playgroup is an opportunity for 0-5 year old children and their parents to meet, sing and have fun while exploring Danish. The playgroup is organised by parents and free for Danish-Scottish Society members. You can either join here or you are welcome to drop in and join on the day.
The Edinburgh playgroup takes place at 6VT Youth Cafe from 1-3pm, however, due to the risk of corona virus, the playgroup will be off until further notice. We will advertise via the usual channels when the playgroup is back in action.
The format of a typical playgroup is:
13-13.15: Welcome (especially for new members) and introduction to the theme for the day + a song about the theme
13.15-14: Free play, snacks and coffee
14.00: Songs (about the theme)
14.10: Story time (about the theme)
14.30: More free play + thanks and goodbye
Any changes will be communicated via our mailing list (to join email firstname.lastname@example.org ) 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 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 email@example.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.
