Intergenerational Learning Centers bring small children, elderly together

The St. Vincent Nursing Home in Seattle has opened a pre-school on its premises, promising to provide more intergenerational contact.  The story is here.    It is called the Intergenerational Learning Center.  It’s more likely that this concept would work well with an assisted living center as opposed to a true nursing home. 
The appear to be Intergenerational Learning Centers in other cities, such as the one above near Minneapolis.

The news story appeared alongside another item about education on the same site tweeted today by Jack Andraka.
