Preschool is Bridging the Gap!
Last month we took a field trip to Elder Care to visit and make new friends with the amazing ladies and gentlemen that are a part of their program. We all had such a wonderful time, and it was such a positive experience, not just for our preschoolers, but also for the Elder Care members that our kids spent time with. They worked together to plant flowers and make bird feeders, and it was easy to see the fun the kids were having and the joy it brought to the adults.
There is so much to be said about the benefits of children and those in Elder Care coming together. Not only do the older generations have so much to teach the children and so many wonderful stories of history to pass down, but studies have proven that interacting with young children in daily activities helps the older generation battle feelings of depression and loneliness. I know the kids really enjoyed the time they spent with them, and we look forward to making another visit soon!
Getting in Touch With Nature!
In June we will be making a trip to Sunset Ranch to explore the great outdoors! We will spend the majority of the day out there playing in the creek, walking through the trees, and seeing what we can find. There is so much to see, and the kids always have so much fun just getting to be outside in the open air. It gives them the opportunity to hear and experience things in nature and let their imaginations run. We may be rulers of the jungle or in search of a buried treasure! It will be an exciting day, and I know they will be ready to share it with you!
