Purple Party held at cylch meithrin Maenclochog to launch Dewiniaith
On Tuesday, 19 May, at 10.30am cylch meithrin Maenclochog, Pembrokeshire will host a Parti Piws (purple party) to celebrate the publication of the final version of’ Dewiniaith’ – an important document outlining a strategic vision for Mudiad Meithrin over the next 10 years. This document’s title ‘Dewiniaith’ is a reference to ‘Dewin and Doti’ – Mudiad Meithrin’s much loved characters who encourage the children in our cylchoedd meithrin (Welsh-medium playgroups) to speak Welsh.
Dr Gwenllian Lansdown Davies, Mudiad Meithrin’s Chief Executive will be present at the ‘Parti Piws’, as well as Dewin and Doti of course!
Dr Gwenllian Lansdown Davies said:
“The aim of this document is to provide direction for the work of all those involved with Mudiad Meithrin, and to provide guidance for our salaried staff. It outlines a strategic vision for Mudiad Meithrin over the next 10 years and is the result of a period of strategic planning by the Mudiad Meithrin team.”
To acknowledge Mudiad Meithrin’s importance throughout Wales – bearing in mind that 22,000 children a week benefit from our services – a consultation copy of ‘Dewiniaith’ was launched in January this year on the Senedd steps, in Cardiff Bay. Over 60 responses were received to the document and the views and recommendations have been incorporated into the final version of the document.
Four ‘Parti Piws’ will be held in one cylch meithrin in the 4 regions throughout Wales over the coming month.
Rhiannon Lloyd, Mudiad Meithrin’s Chair said:
“A cylch meithrin is present in most of Wales’s villages, towns and cities and is an important cornerstone of the community in its provision of high-quality care and education through the medium of Welsh. Mudiad Meithrin is proud of the fact that many of the children who attend cylchoedd come from families where Welsh isn’t spoken, therefore the children begin their Welsh language journey with us at our cylchoedd.”
