Welsh Language Support
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.
Begin the bilingual journey With over 65,000 children in Welsh-medium or bilingual primary schools in Wales, why do parents consider the Welsh language important for their children?
By choosing Welsh-medium education, you’ll be giving your child an additional life skill — the ability to communicate in two languages, both spoken and written.
Rhag is an association which represents parents throughout Wales. The group includes both Welsh speakers and non-Welsh speakers; living in towns or rural areas. Rhag believes that bilingualism is one of the greatest gifts one can give a child, and that the ability to speak Welsh will help children develop confidence in themselves and in their culture.
