Mudiad Meithrin is looking for nominations of staff and volunteers in Cylchoedd Meithrin, Cylchoedd Ti a Fi and Day Nurseries for awards in 11 categories.

Leanne Marsh, Head of Services Development for Mudiad Meithrin said:"The awards ceremony is an opportunity for Mudiad Meithrin to recognise and thank the staff and volunteers at grassroots level.

"This gives everyone an opportunity to nominate an early years setting – be it a Cylch Meithrin, a Cylch Ti a Fi or a day nursery – for an award in one of 11 categories.”

All the details are available on-line - - with an invitation for anyone to nominate a cylch or day nursery in a number of fields.

"You can also add up to three images to support your nomination.”

Iola Jones, Head of Partnerships and Communications for Mudiad Meithrin said: "We hope that many will see this as an opportunity for a Welsh-medium early years setting in their area to be recognised for its work and we look forward to receiving a host of nominations.”
