Here at Little Gems Pre-School, we are partnering with Jump Jiggle and Jive in an intergenerational initiative! This fun opportunity aims to promote movement, dance, music, and community building! We will be working at Dunlady Nursing Home on a regular basis in small groups. Everyone is taking part! These sessions will be tailor made to get everyone up jumping and jiving!
At the end of October, we went on our first session. We were over the moon with the participation from our children as well as the residents. We sang, danced, moved, laughed, and enjoyed refreshments together! The older residents were delighted to see the energy and enthusiasm of the children. We were on our best behaviour and everyone helped give out equipment, stickers and hugs! It was brilliant to greet new friends and make new memories. We are delighted to be able to provide these special experiences. This opportunity will help our children learn about ageing and the elderly. Also, it helps us to learn more about our own community and everyone got to be a helper! Here’s to the next one, we can’t wait!
