The preschool class visits the Parkland Shannex twice each month to spend time with their Grand-friends. Intergenerational experiences are beneficial for both the young and old. Children can develop a greater sense of empathy, a willingness to help, and an early sense of community service; while the increased socialization with young children can improve mental wellbeing for the elder participants. The kids and seniors engage in crafts, songs, and other activities.
The preschool class goes on various group outings each month. They make regular visits to the community public libraries as well as trips to parks and playgrounds. They travel by Metro Transit bus to reach local destinations.
