I recently read this article which appeared on the Good Morning America talk show. A Seattle nursing home also has a preschool on site. The concept of intergenerational education is not a new one, but this nursing home went further and added a preschool. They involve both generations in story time, dancing, crafts, and other engaging activities. This idea is changing how young people view the older generation. Young and old learn from each other, and enjoy their time together. What a heart warming story that is living proof that learning can be fun regardless of age!
