Children from the nursey enjoyed an afternoon of baking, learning vital life skills and building meaningful relationships the with residents from Mount Vale, as part of the nursery’s ongoing relationship with the care home.
Rosedene, which has 10 settings across the North East and Yorkshire, plays an integral part in the community, including involvement in community litter picks, charity fundraising for local and national charities, as well as the participation in intergenerational activities with care homes.
Katie Garbutt, Deputy Manager at Rosedene Northallerton said: “Community partnerships are an integral part of our ethos.
“The intergenerational visits are something for both the residents and children to look forward to and are important to us as we look to expand our children’s knowledge on community.”
Rhianna Rees, Nursery Nurse at Rosedene Northallerton said: “These visits are hugely beneficial for the children in preparing them for life in the future.
“During the afternoon, the children learned a lot about healthy living as well as developing their mathematic skills through engagements with residents.”
