Intergenerational Program – Preschool in Surprise AZ

Imagine being a child sitting next to a “grandma” or “grandpa” and learning how to play bingo, make bread together, or create puppets and put on a show.

The Wirtzie’s Intergenerational Program is optional, but if you choose to participate, this unique program offers your child daily planned, intentional activities where children and seniors come together to grow, learn about themselves and others and form relationships that can be life changing.

Studies have shown that children participating in Intergenerational Programs demonstrate higher levels of social acceptance, willingness to help, empathy and ability to self-regulate.

“The curriculum is what stands out. The children are learning so much it’s amazing. I wish Amr could stay here for elementary school!”

—Cori, Wirtzie’s parent
