Details:

The Intergenerational Day Care will be operated as a University/Community partnership as a Center of Excellence in child and adult care, serving children, adults and caregivers throughout Central Ohio.  The unique space will have senior-focused and adult elements, such as fitness stations and walking paths, to promote good posture, balance and flexibility – as well as more traditional, kid-friendly equipment to build a truly multi-generational space. 

Currently, the Center does not have suitable playground equipment for children or exercise equipment for seniors. Volunteers from across our community will come together  to build a brand new playground.
