Bridging The Gap Class… A Huge Success

Our first class in the old people’s home was full of smiles, old and young.

The setting is beautiful, the numbers for the size was ideal. I felt by us as parents being on the floor with the children made us instantly more involved and when the smalls were ready they had the confidence to stand up, explore and join in.
It would be lovely to see similar faces and get to know some of the residents a little.
Looking forward to this Friday too.”

The residents seemed really happy to see the children, a couple were really verbal about their enjoyment which was lovely.”
