14 Comments Overall, the guide and activities have helped to reinforce practice. It is well needed for staff and parents. I would like now more opportunities to involve parents and to support them at home. This has been a very good experience. This has helped me find ideas and to introduce the Welsh language to non-Welsh speaking children. I would appreciate more support like this. This would benefit all members of staff starting in the cylch and they would benefit from the training. This was an interesting project but we found it too difficult to adapt to the smallest children less than two years old.
