Clover’s intergenerational pre-school program emphasizes the concept that people come in a variety of sizes, ages and abilities. The sharing and exchanging of life experiences is as vital to structured elements of a well rounded education as letter and number recognition.
Clover kids interact with and learn along side their “grandfriends.” Daily and weekly activities benefit both age groups. Art, music and free play enhance the more structured elements of pre-school learning, all with the goal of building a successful kindergarten experience. The enduring friendships that are formed between the children and residents offer lessons that last a lifetime.
