Our Carlton North, Clare Court and Broadmeadows Early Learning Centres run heart warming Intergenerational Programs. The centres have built a relationship with their local Aged Care service, allowing the children to regularly visit and spend quality time with the residents.
From tonight, Tuesday 27 August at 8.30pm, the ABC will embark on an intergenerational experiment capturing children sharing a pre-school with the residents of a nearby retirement home. This remarkable journey will be screening over five weeks on ABC + ABC iview.
Gowrie Victoria have proudly run intergenerational program at our services over the past few years. We encourage you to watch the segment to gain an insight into the experience.
If you’d like to find out how we can help your Early Learning centre connect with an Aged Care service in your community, please get in touch with Jenny Cock on 9362 2210 or at JennyC@gowrievictoria.org.au.
