Villa St Francis Intergenerational Playgroup

November 14 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am

St. John’s on the Lake and Eastcastle are our most established partnerships and Villa St Francis is our newest inter-generational playgroup spot! We are partnering with Bayview Community Center for this one! The playgroups we host give children a true inter-generational experience while learning patience, kindness, and how to make new friends. Our friends at Saint John’s and Eastcastle benefit tremendously from the interaction with our children. It’s a win-win! 

PURPOSE: To provide an opportunity to children, parents, and assisted living residents to interact and play with each other in a relaxed, friendly, playful, organized environment. 

IMPACT: Children will develop awareness of and relationships with members of the community they would otherwise not meet. Residents in the assisted living facility will have a chance to be around our energetic and humorous cutie-pies and offer their love and gentle care for them. 

ACTIVITIES: Each month, we follow the same structure to help children and residents alike become familiar and comfortable in the playgroup. We begin with the “Hello Song” followed by a book, a craft, an activity and snack. If time permits we have free play followed by our “Good Bye Song”. Activities in the playgroup are planned around the theme of the month. While we do follow some structure, we assure you that the structure of the playgroups only enhances the fun!
