Inter-generational Programme

Building relationships across generations between children and seniors.

Our youngest volunteer, 7-year-old Travis Wong, performing a duet with Mr Malcolm from Day Centre for Seniors (Kampung Admiralty).

Since its launch in 2017, our Inter-generational Programme has been bringing seniors and preschoolers together!

These interactions help our seniors be more engaged, and also raises their self-esteem with the children looking to them for guidance. The preschoolers, on the other hand, gain more confidence with the love from the seniors, while learning the values of respect, compassion and concern for the elderly.

From ad hoc sessions in the beginning, the Inter-generational Programme is now a staple at our Day Centre for Seniors, Nursing Homes, Active Ageing Centres and Active Ageing Care Hubs.

Seniors and their little friends enjoy activities such as:

  • Art and crafts
  • Light exercises and stretching
  • Song and dance
  • Reading sessions
  • Playing games
  • And many more!

Adorable conversations between our seniors and their preschooler friends from My First Skool!
