Generations Early Learning & Family Center nurtures growth, education, and community for all ages!
Generations Early Learning & Family Center believes that given the opportunity, resources, and stimulus, children have the potential to develop their innate capacities and learning styles during the first six years of life. Generations believes that all children need to have experiences through activities and interactions that are appropriate to his/her learning style and developmental needs. The center provides intergenerational interaction between children and the residents of Mt. Baker Care Center and Summit Place Assisted Living. These interactions benefit children by providing "grandparents" for daily contact and support, and by encouraging the child's sense of self-worth through this extended family concept. This intergenerational model also benefits the senior citizens in our community by giving them enhanced socialization, emotional support, and stimulated learning. Generations Early Learning & Family Center blends two types of institutional cultures to produce a marvelous result - a multigenerational living-learning environment.
