The launch of Cylch Ti a Fi Tŷ-croes (suitable for children from birth to school age) gave 30 local parents and children an opportunity to meet staff and take part in a free session at St Edmund’s Church Hall on Ammanford Road in the company of Dewin, Mudiad Meithrin’s unique children’s character.
Cylch Ti a Fi Tŷ-croes will be open every Thursday between 9.15 a.m. and 11.00 a.m. until Thursday 19 July before re-opening its doors at the start of September.
The launch comes as part of a Mudiad Meithrin project to offer additional support to establish new Cylchoedd Meithrin (Welsh-medium playgroups) where there is a lack of Welsh-medium early years provision.
Carole Williams, the project’s Carmarthenshire officer, said: “The Cylch Ti a Fi offers activities that helps child development from birth to when they reach school age. It is a wonderful opportunity for parents or guardians to meet and share experiences and socialise in a Welsh environment.”
According to Heather Davies-Rollinson, Mudiad Meithrin’s South-West and Mid Wales Regional Manager, the hope is that establishing the Cylch Ti a Fi at Tŷ-croes will lead on to a Cylch Meithrin opening there in the autumn.
Heather said:“The aim is to open a Cylch Meithrin in Tŷ-croes and provide an early years service for the children of the local community.”
