Moving on from Cylch Ti a Fi, your child can attend a Cylch Meithrin.  The aim of the Cylch Meithrin is to promote the education and development of children from 2 years old to school age.

At the Cylch Meithrin, your child will have the opportunity to enjoy the company of other children and learn through play. Many Cylchoedd Meithrin in Cardiff are located on school sites which will help your child transition into Nursery life at a Welsh-medium school.

Some Cylchoedd Meithrin offer wrap around care. School-based nursery are half day sessions, so when your child is not at the nursery, they can be cared for in the Cylch Meithrin.
