Preschool housed in nursing home changing everyone’s lives

Preschool housed in nursing home changing everyone’s lives

A preschool housed within a retirement home is changing the lives of seniors and toddlers alike.

Providence Mount St. Vincent in Seattle houses over 400 elderly residents; The Intergenerational Learning Center (ILC) is a childcare facility that allows infants-to-5-year-olds interact with these residents through structured and unstructured activities.

The broad purpose of the ILC is to help children learn about the elderly. Specifically, the program aims to have kids learn about the normal aging process, accept people with disabilities, help them reduce their fear of older adults, and to receive and give unconditional and unbounded love and attention. A documentary about the initiative is presently in the works.
