What is an "intergenerational shared-site day program?"

It is a program where child and adult providers share a campus or building and mutual resources. In this positive environment, elders become storytellers to children and children give new life and joy to the elders. A dynamic exchange between youth and elders leads to a thriving community. Children connect-sharing one smile and one visit at a time. The Clelian Center is fortunate to be located down the hall from the Sacred Heart Manor Nursery & Kindergarten.
