Pre-school visit elderly in local retirement home
Our pre-school children went on a trip to visit residents at the Clayburn Court Care Home and enjoyed some seasonal activities together.
Children and elderly spent an afternoon decorating biscuits and colouring. The two age groups enjoyed each other’s company with many smiles and giggles as they played and talked about their favourite biscuits, colours and shapes.
Trips like this have many fantastic benefits for the children:
- Going out and about helps them learn about wider world and their local community.
- Socialising with people of different ages and backgrounds helps children better understand diversity and not be scared of someone ‘different’ to what they are used to.
- Meeting new people and having a variety of social interactions helps children build up their confidence, improve their social skills and better adapt to new environments. Mastering these skills early will not only support children through life, but also help them transition to school stress free.
