Intergenerational LivingIntergenerational Living through the Learning Centre includes formalized programming designed to bring children and seniors together for a specific purpose, and informal interactions to encourage natural and meaningful engagement. This could include accomplishing a specific task like completing a puzzle or reading a book, enjoying some music, baking or creating artwork. It could also include joining a group of residents for a meal, a snack, or to simply enjoy a local Regina performer together. Both formal and informal interactions provide unique opportunities for our residents and children to share their knowledge, experiences and time with each other.
Learning Through PlayOur second key principle is learning through play. We believe in using the world around us to encourage children to explore and learn. Our goal is to encourage their natural curiosity and unique learning styles, helping develop their gross and fine motor skills, pre-reading abilities, pre-writing skills and encourage a love of learning and experiencing new things!
