We are so excited to announce our Intergenerational Learning Partnership with BrightView Senior Living Community!
Each month Honey Tree will either host or visit our new friends at Brightview.
Beginning in September we will host as many as 9 Senior Residents from Brightview. In our Preschool and PreK classrooms the seniors will work with the children to create art, science and other projects. We have researched Intergenerational centers in the UK where there is a Preschool on one floor and Senior Center on another. The groups spend activity time, lunch and do all sorts of fun things together. The benefits for both generations are incredible. We are thrilled to be the first school in Monroe to provide this tremendous experience.
Additionally, BrightView is excited to host activities for Honey Tree families! We plan on visiting the Senior Center in December and May to sing songs and mingle with our new friends. This may be a family event in the evening - so EVERYONE can visit with the Seniors. In the meantime, they have a movie room, a craft center and more. We will plan field trips to visit Brightview throughout the year
