FPN (also referred to as early education) is a term used to describe the time your child spends in the Foundation Phase, from the term following their 3rd birthday, until the September following their 4th birthday. Although not compulsory, this is a very important phase in your child’s life as it lays the building blocks for their future learning.
Cymraeg for kids is a national scheme by the Welsh Government that supports parents to use the Welsh language with their children by choosing Welsh medium childcare and education. The scheme is regulated by Mudiad Meithrin that provides Welsh medium childcare and preschool education in the day nurseries and the Cylch Meithrin.
We know that most children across the world speak two languages, and that they have the ability to grasp a language at an early age. The sooner a child hears Welsh the better.
