Dundee's Fab Dad Days

Category: Bookbug

Bookbug Success Stories is all about celebrating successes in Scotland's local authorities and this month we kick things off with Fab Dad Days that are being held in Dundee.  



Dads in Dundee are getting the chance to meet together, play together, read together and sing together as part of a new partnership project. Leisure and Culture Dundee and the Education department have started to run regular fun free play sessions. Dads are encouraged to come along on a Tuesday to meet other dads, learn new ways to play and spend quality time interacting with their children.


Sean, fulltime dad to a 14th month old and a 3-year-old enjoys the opportunity to meet with other dads; "I enjoy the group as it offers fun activities in a relaxed atmosphere. There is plenty of choice and as the group is small all the children interact well - (it) gives you a chance to talk to and meet other Dads and share ideas. This is good as it gives you a male perspective on childcare rather than a purely female one like the majority of groups."
