Mudiad Meithrin is a voluntary organisation and is the main provider of Welsh-medium early years care and education in the voluntary sector. Their aim is to give every young child in Wales the opportunity to benefit from early years care and education experiences through the medium of Welsh.
They employ over 200 staff nationally, and and additional 1,500 members of staff work in the cylchoedd meithrin (Welsh-medium playgroups) throughout Wales. Development Officers work at a local level in each county offering guidance and practical advice to staff, volunteers and parents at the cylchoedd.
As play is integral to every aspect of children’s development, the experiences and activities offered across our range of provision are based on learning through play. Special emphasis is placed on language development and the personal, social and emotional development of the children in the cylchoedd.
The purpose of the cylch Ti a Fi is to offer parents and carers an opportunity meet regularly to enjoy playing with their children and socialise over a cuppa!
The cylch Ti a Fi provides activities promoting the development of children from birth to school age. It’s a brilliant opportunity for parents/carers to meet to socialise and share experiences in an informal Welsh atmosphere.
The aim of the cylch meithrin is to promote the education and development of children from two years old to school age.
Children will be able to learn through play and socialise under the guidance of professional, qualified and dedicated staff.
A number of day nurseries are members of Mudiad Meithrin. Most of them are private companies which follow the Mudiad’s policies.
