Young and Old Mingling at Comox Seniors’ Residence

In Comox Valley, British Columbia, Canada, a group of kindergartners from Valley View visits Berwick Comox Valley senior center every week to learn alongside older adults. According to Karen Reimer, a Valley View kindergarten teacher, this experience “gives [the kindergartners] a broader sense of their community and it gives the residents a chance to share their knowledge and experience, as well”. The program was created by the Comox Valley School District and Berwick Comox Valley in which to groups of kindergarten classes alternate every week with their visits to the home.
