Intergenerational Play- Briary Preschool
Briary Preschool started an Intergenerational play venture with a local care home. Our elder groups visit and share some activities with the residents, including chocolate play dough, puzzles and singing fortnightly. They enjoy a nice drink before heading back to preschool. The benefits of Intergenerational play have been well documented and research shows that play is especially good for the elderly: it promotes relaxation, reduces stress and helps to maintain cognitive skills. We are very excited about this partnership with our new friends.
