On Thursday the 3rd of April, Huw Lewis, Minister for Education and Skills visited Meithrinfa Garth Olwg day nursery in Church Village near Pontypridd. Mudiad Meithrin has been responsible for the management and development of Meithrinfa Garth Olwg for nearly a decade.
Meithrinfa Garth Olwg is situated on Garth Olwg Integrated Campus which also includes Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Garth Olwg, Ysgol Uwchradd Gymraeg Garth Olwg (Welsh-medium primary and secondary schools) and a Lifelong Learning Centre.
Meithrinfa Garth Olwg Day Nursery offers quality childcare and education for children from six weeks old to school age. The nursery offers full and part time day care with qualified and experienced staff. Each child has the opportunity to take part in various activities that promote all aspects of his/her development. The nursery is well equipped with toys, books, art and craft materials, facilities for water and sand play, as well as various other equipment that encourage imaginative play.
Mr Lewis commented:
“We strongly believe that learning through play is a great way of developing essential skills from an early age and that children should have access to learning in both Welsh and English. Mudiad Meithrin carries out important work in promoting the development of the Welsh language within safe, friendly and uniquely Welsh play settings”.
This is Huw Lewis with Hywel Jones, Mudiad Meithrin Chief Executive, Dona Lewis Deputy Chief Executive and Donna Joseph, Nursery Manager.
