Intergenerational Playgroups

January 17, 2023 @ 10:30 am - May 16, 2024 @ 11:15 am

Older adults have a special place in our hearts. Kids Impact Community has hosted intergenerational playgroups since the organization’s inception. Our kiddos have learned patience, kindness, and how to make new friends of all ages, and our “grandfriends” benefit tremendously from the interaction with our children.

Activities

Your family will participate in a variety of themed playgroups complete with songs, dancing, a craft, and snack.

Purpose

To provide an opportunity for children, parents, and assisted living residents to interact and play with each other in a relaxed, friendly, and 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.

When and Where

Eastcastle Place

2505 E Bradford Place, Milwaukee, WI 53211

Please meet in the main lobby.

Parking: Street parking is available on Bradford Place or Stowell Ave. Please allow some time to find parking.
