In the ‘Yr Hen Lyfrgell’ on the 6th of February, an open day will be held at Mudiad Meithrin’s first ever Crèche. The Mudiad lookin forward to welcoming the children of Wales through the doors of Dewin and Doti’s Balalŵn (Dewin and Doti’s spaceship,) Mudiad Meithrin’s lovable and unique characters.
Leanne Marsh (south-east Wales Regional Manager) said:
"After all the planning we are looking forward to welcoming the children and parents through the Crèche’s doors. The Crèche is a first of its kind by the Mudiad which will provide sessional care of an hour and a half or three hours for parents so they are free to work, shop or meet friends for coffee or lunch while the children are entertained by Mudiad Meithrin’s team of specialised staff - and their friends Dewin and Doti of course."
"As the open day is fast approaching, we invite everyone to join us to see and participate in all the exciting activities held at the Crèche. Dewin will be attending and will host a party, there will also be craft activities, story and song session and perhaps just as important – there will be an opportunity to look around this new and exciting provision at ‘Yr Hen Lyfrgell’, Cardiff."
As part of the Crèche’s open day there is another special event happening, which is the launch of the Mudiad’s new anthem in the company of the composer and artist Carys John ( from Ffa-la-la). The Mudiad loves its new anthem because it crystalizes the child’s experience of belonging and living through Mudiad Meithrin’s work and child care provisions.
Dona Lewis (Mudiad Meithrin’s Acting Chief Executive) said:
“Mudiad Meithrin is very proud to be a partner of this exciting new venture at ‘Yr Hen Lyfrgell’. The Crèche is a first for the Mudiad which gives us the opportunity to respond to the need to provide flexible and innovative child care for parents. We are very much looking forward to welcoming families on the 6th of February to our open day, and to start providing quality child care in a colourful, exiting and extensive setting.”
