Byron Bay Preschool runs inter-generational programs in partnership with our local aged care facilities. Research indicates that intergenerational programs build community mental health, allow children to build important relationships with elders, learn new wisdom, and learn to care for others. Intergenerational Programs give the elderly a sense of meaning and purpose, reduce loneliness, and allow elderly citizens in our community to pass on their wisdom and life experiences. Byron Bay Preschool is a member of the Australian Institute for Intergenerational Practice and commits to running ongoing programs where small groups of children and elderly people can work together on common interests including gardening, cooking, and choir. Play is also seen as important.
Term one: Wednesdays 9-11.30am
21st Jan, 28th Jan, 6th Feb and 13th Feb.
