We have commenced an Intergenerational program with the preschool. Our first visit was with 2 clients on Monday the 23rd of September to the Preschool where we were made very welcome.
The aim of the program is to provide opportunities for different generations to come together to share experiences, knowledge and skills that are mutually beneficial and foster long term positive relationships.
These experiences typically involve interactions between the generations at the opposite end of the human life span. Benefits include building a sense of purpose, of belonging and foster growth and understanding between the generations. This worked very well the first day and we have been invited back next term to continue the project.
