This publication is available in PDF format only.

Intergenerational programs are most effective when activities are age- and role-appropriate.

Although all children are different, there is a predictable sequence in their development. Age- and role-appropriate educational opportunities are critical to a quality early childhood education program. Early childhood programs aim to prepare children for school while developing their social skills.
