Benefits for young & old
In recent years intergenerational learning has been at the forefront of early years education around the world. It started in Seattle over 25 years ago and has grown in prominence ever since being picked up in Japan and all around Europe. The UK has been involved more recently and studies have shown the social benefits for the children as well as the wellbeing of the residents as being extremely positive.
We are lucky enough to in partnership with the charity Brighter Together who have connected us with Lynde House care home. The Sycamores visit Lynde House every Tuesday where the children and the residents do activities together and sing songs.
