Community Play Date

Together, we seek to:

Welcome everyone

Provide a safe environment

 Offer friendship, support and a listening ear

Value, encourage and 

involve everyone

Care for all 

It is not uncommon for parents and carers to organise Play Dates for their babies and children: it is a time for wee ones to have fun, make friends and meet other adults.  It is also a time for parents and carers to do the same!  Often, what is done during this time is less important than the ‘doing it together’ in a safe and friendly environment.  

It is this ethos of relaxed welcome that the Community Play Date offers to all pre-school children and babies in 

Monifieth and their parents and/or carers.  


Expectant mothers and partners are also welcome.


The Community Play Date is run by the congregation of Monifieth Parish Church and is open to people of all faiths and none.  In offering this space of welcome and hospitality, our aims are that:

  • Children and babies will have a safe and happy place to play, learn, interact and make friends
  • Parents and carers will have a safe and supportive place to interact with the children they bring
  • Parents and carers will be supported by volunteers and peers in their family role

From these specific aims, it is hoped that the following may be allowed to happen:

  • Supportive friendships will develop between families
  • Long-lasting relationships will grow within the community
  • People of all ages will feel able to share concerns, ask for help and   provide support to one another as required
  • We will all be able to flourish in our lives and relationships, at home, work and play

We meet each Wednesday morning from 10am until 12noon in Monifieth Parish Church, 41 High Street, 

Monifieth.  Come along as an when you are able.

Whilst there is no set structure, the children are encouraged to help set-up, engage in free-play together, listen to a story (at least one!) and help clear-up at the end.  Refreshments are offered to parents/  carers and are also available for wee ones, although many have their own.  Some bring lunch, especially if they are heading to Nursery thereafter.

Attendance is free and open to all families with young ones.  


All Invited : All Welcome
