L-SKIP (Lethbridge Seniors’ and Kids’ Intergenerational Program) is a partnership between Lethbridge Early Years Coalition, Lethbridge Sport Council, Lethbridge Public Library and Nord-Bridge Seniors. In the spring of 2017 this successful pilot program was launched which saw pre-school aged kids paired with Nord-Bridge members for a one hour program, once a week for three weeks. The first 30 minutes involved Nord-Bridge members engaging in physical motor skilled activities (ie. Bean Bag toss and parachute games) with the preschoolers. Followed by a small nutritious snack and refreshment and wrapping up with Nord-Bridge Members reading to the preschoolers. The aim of this social program is increase the intergenerational connections.
Free registration is now open for Tuesdays, January 23rd, January 30th, February 6th, as well as February 13th from 1:30-2:30PM. Space is limited so contact [email protected] or call 403-715-4585 to save a spot!
