Life With A Baby's Grandparent Connection ~ Remembrance Day Learning & Mingle ~ Newmarket

**all ages welcome**

Inspired by this Story: "This Is What Happens When You Put A Preschool In A Nursing Home"

Chartwell Alexander Muir Retirement Home Newmarket

Life With A Baby York Region North Chapter, in connection with Chartwell Alexander Muir Retirement Residence & Grandparent Connection York Region are proud to announce this new program connecting the Youth and Seniors of our local community.  Our hope is to provide fun and educational inter-generational programming to bring together bonds and make "grand-friends".

Each month we will meet and participate in a theme-based: 

  • story time
  • bubbles & parachute play
  • finger plays & nursery rhymes 
  • songs & dance
  • social bonding time 
  • arts & crafts 
  • snack time 

This Month's Special Meet Up Details:
  • this retirement residence is proud to care for several military veterans.  Many will be in attendance at this event to showcase their memorabilia and garments for the kids to explore and learn at their leisure and ask questions during open social time.
    • we will do a fun Remembrance Day craft with the kids and seniors.  The children may choose a "grand-friend" to gift their craft to if they choose 
    • there will be a kid-friendly and hand on discussion / exercise on "Community Hero's vs. Super Hero's"
    • we will do a kid-friendly moment of silence at 11am & snack time (--> if your child cannot remain silent and still for the minute, that is TOTALLY FINE in this environment!... this is more about the meaning and attempt.  Hopefully the snack will keep them occupied during this time perhaps ;)
This is going to be an amazing opportunity for the kids to learn from their "grand-friends"!!!
