Playgroups

Dads Rock runs playgroups several times a week, including at the weekend. They are fun, positive and rocking places to be, for dads/male carers and kids.

At the groups, kids can play, have a healthy snack, have story time and finish with songs. There are also outings and trips throughout the year.

 

Rock Academy

Dads Rock Academy is Scotland’s first and only rock academy for young people and their parents. It offers weekly rock band tuition to kids and their dads, as well as giving them a free instrument whilst they attend the academy.  Dads Rock Academy is open for young people aged 7-16 years to attend.  The idea is that the families learn together, having a shared experience of learning how to rock!

 

Young Dad’s 

Dads’ Rock want to see more support for young fathers. From April 2016 they are running a growing project in Saughton Park for young dads aged 25 and under, and their kids.
