Activities such as ‘Story time at the Village’ and Baking Club are just a couple of opportunities we offer for residents to share their wisdom and encourage mutual cross-generational sharing of talents, skills, experiences, and energy.

A variety of approaches are harnessed to engage a play-based environment including project- based learning, open-ended materials, experiential and creative opportunities. Educators are encouraged to allow the children to explore materials and try to step back when children are creating.
