Follow Up Focus Group Results

The Findings from the Staff & Family Focus Groups

Please find below a record of the conversations that took place for the Staff & Family focus groups. You can read more about the design of the focus group, format & content, on the previous blog post here.

I thoroughly enjoyed leading both a family and a staff focus group. I was so grateful for the support given by the parents and the time they offered. Their thoughts and ideas brought new perspectives that I hadn’t considered before, making their views invaluable. Being a primary 1 teacher, it was lovely to hold a meeting with nursery practitioners and hear their opinions about the process of play and family involvement, especially in these tricky times.

They were fascinating discussions to be a part of and to facilitate. The family focus discussion was really useful for the project, and also my own understanding of family views within my own setting.

Staff Focus Groups

I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with fellow professionals in a variety of roles from different settings and areas of Scotland. We shared a passion for play and identified the enormous value in building relationships with families so we can work collaboratively to champion quality play experiences.

I really enjoyed being part of the session lead by Lisa who was fantastic. It was great to chat with other professionals and collaborate and share our practice and passions which were all very similar including music and singing and outdoor play. Lisa gave a very clear overview of the project and made us feel very welcome. She gave us the space and allowed us to share our views on play and family learning. We all had a shared passion of play and ways to work collaboratively with families to put play at the heart.
