Dads' Play

2016 was the 'Year of the dad', and Grounds for Learning is piloting work with dads and young children, improving relationships and health and well being through simple play sessions outdoors.

There are 8 sessions led by Grounds for Learning with dads and children from selected nurseries. These play days build relationships in families, encourage and support dads to have a variety of simple play ideas outdoors.

The sessions are finished with a community play day, and a second programme led by the dads from the first programme.

The programme was funded by Inspiring Scotland, and forms part of a wider provision across Scotland. There are now a variety of organisations and projects using the learning from this project that GfL is working with in 2017.
