Following the bilingual journey
Our parent support groups are friendly and inclusive and they’re a great way to build confidence, learn a little Welsh or socialize with new parents in your area. There’s a warm welcome for all, Welsh speakers, learners and non-Welsh speakers. Note that these are school term groups only, attending our groups is free of charge.
After attending our groups, parents are encouraged to attend their local Ti a Fi group before registering the child at the local Cylch Meithrin.
Our sessions are aimed at parents and preschool children and it’s an opportunity for you to familiarise yourself with the Welsh language in an informal environment and make new friends.
You’ll have an opportunity to become familiar with simple Welsh rhymes to sing along to with your baby, learn simple phrases and you’ll come across Welsh and bilingual books and useful apps for yourself and your baby.
If you desire to learn Welsh from scratch or want to gain confidence, you can refer to a course called Welsh for the Family.
Clwb Doti a Fi is a lively club, run monthly for Cymraeg for kids families.
You’ll have a Welsh story and rhymetime session, do an activity with your baby and socialize with new parents.
You’ll also come into contact with other Welsh & early years partners in your area e.g. Menter Iaith, National Centre for Learning Welsh, Family Information Service and others.
The Cymraeg for kids officer is available to answer any questions that you may have regarding how to choose Welsh medium childcare and education.
